A surreal music video directed by Michel Gondry for Radiohead’s Knives Out, a single off of the 2001 album Amnesiac. It is shot in one take and features frontman Thom Yorke and Emma de Caunes as a couple.

One of my favourite music videos because it perfectly captures the spirit of the song while being, in many ways, utterly counter to the song's aesthetic. I tend to like Gondry most when the whimsy falls headlong into nightmare (while remaining just as cartoony). The cannibalistic family under the hospital bed is, for me, one of the most frightening images in all music videos. Plus, life-sized 'Operation'!
