Adam Whybray's rating of the film Around the World

3.5 stars. I find "the spry glissandos by synchronized swimmers" really inexplicably appealing. In fact, the whole video feels hugely fetishistic to me without being whatsoever overly sexualised like so, so many other music videos. I like that, even though it's just a cyclical dance upon a stage, it really feels like a freaky self-contained world (as the title of the song suggests). Forget 'Get Lucky', rewatch this.
