Well, get ready to party like it's 1984 -- and make of this entire effort what you will. There's something reassuring about Duran Duran -- who've admittedly aged very well, certainly without looking too desperate or cartoonish -- returning basically to their heyday by casting a bunch of 80s supermodel glamazons for the ten-minute, Jonas Åkerlund-helmed video for their new single, Girl Panic!
The first few things you notice about the clip are, a) they somehow got Naomi Campbell to sit in one place for a total of four minutes without throwing a phone at someone, b) you can totally see Eva Herzigova actually writing the crap lyrics Nick Rhodes churns out, and c) damn it must be fun being Duran Duran.
Here's Girl Panic!
