The Video is Here!

September 3, 2009

Flickering to life at about 4:30 pm East Coast US time on tokiohotel.com, the “Automatic” video:

So, were the predictions on the money? Yes, there’s a post-apocalyptic Mad Max vibe… plus cyborgs.  Sort of like the early metal Cylons, a little Terminator (also post-apocalyptic), with cool built-in weaponry. But there’s no battle – these cyborgs, in contrast to the lone-wolf guys in the video (aka the Band) are getting romantic.

The rumors that there’s a girl in the video were kind of true… though the “female” is a robot. It’s not exactly the kind of romance some fans were predicting.

    I was thrilled for a sec when I thought both robots were nondescript…bit disappointed when I saw one had hips/waist. Thought it would have been cool to leave it more ambiguous. Ah,well.

    Not into the autotune…but the chorus & soaring powerpoppiness aspect are OK by me…by all indicators should be a radio hit?
