New LCD Soundsystem Video Looks Slightly Familiar

lcd_soundsystem.jpgOne of the great things about LCD Soundsystem is the hay they make with stuff we already know, or think we do. So it stands to reason that “Big Ideas,” LCD’s new single from the soundtrack of the Vegas movie 21, is something of an homage to a well-known dance classic by a group LCD can’t seem to stop making reference to. Still, we couldn’t help thinking the video’s set reminded us of a different, yet equally classic, dance-music video, as you can see below.

    the LCD video no longer exists so its hard to compare… but that is the first time ive seen the “sex over the phone video” and its pretty ridiculous to say the least.

    I love LCD Soundsystem & think that 21 flick looks deplorable. Why did the Spacey sign on?

    Oh, I remember. He is making no money living & London and is probably squandering the minor ducats the Old Vic is giving him on 19yearold cockney twinks.

    Well, at least we don’t have to look at his enormous head in it. Honestly, it’s good but Hot Chip does this type of video better.

    Did Idolator just rickroll us?

    I’m pretty sure that’s Dee Snyder playing the part of the meter maid toward the end of the VP video.
