Kylie Minogue Is Ms. Pac Man In Her “Better Than Today” Video

The Black Eyed Peas aren’t the only act whose new video is inspired by old school arcade games — Kylie Minogue turns geeky 80s video games into something truly sexified in the clip for her single “Better Than Today”. The vid’s background imagery — not to mention the headgear her backing band sports — is directly inspired by Pac Man. (Kylie worked the Pac Man motif into her recent X Factor appearance as well.) You have to love a super cool chick like Kylie who isn’t afraid to let her inner nerd out in the open. Watch below!

Kylie Minogue — “Better Than Today”

The clip seems to also homage The Rocky Horror Picture Show‘s famous lips, so between this video, Glee‘s tribute episode, and the recent celebrity stage show, the cult movie certainly is having a resurgence in pop culture this year.

What do you think of Ms. Minogue’s new video?

  • Chuck

    She’s all fluff. Silly songs. Plus, we’ve already had Madonna.

  • JPK

    She is fluff except she’s 10 times more genuine and makes everything look effortless (unlike Madonna). 20-something years in the business and she still looks like she’s having fun. There is no one like Kylie.

  • Maaian Arditi

    I generally like Kylie but this song is just boring.

  • vertigoshtick

    She must have co-written this one. “Aphrodite” isn’t exactly crawling with single material (or any signs of life), but this is just a dud among duds.

    • Becky Bain

      Really? I like this one! It sounds like a Scissor Sisters song.
