The Ting Tings Jump Back To The ’80s In Their Orwellian “Hands” Video

The new video from Missing Persons—oops, make that the Ting Tings!— is a synthy,’80s-drenched tour de force that rivals fellow Brit Mark Ronson’s recent offering, “Bang Bang Bang.” Produced by Calvin Harris, “Hands” is a frenetic track that’s given an Orwellian “Big Brother is watching you” video via director Warren Fu. Head below and watch if you’re working too hard.

The Prophet Blog notes that the clip is “Illuminati-heavy,” and references the fact that the Ting Tings are now signed with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation. Are the duo just funning with the already-existing Illuminati rumors that surround Hova?

Ah, who cares—they can worship the Jolly Green Giant as long as they keep cranking out fun pop like this.
