FABTV: The Chemical Brothers, "Elektrobank"

FABTV: The Chemical Brothers, "Elektrobank"

In this Spike Jonze directed vid, Fab favorite Sofia Coppola plays Janet, an injured gymnast. With all the Olympics hoopla, this was the perfect FABTV for right now. Sofia looks every bit the part: feathered bangs, scrunchied pony, toned bod (but maybe too skinny, have you seen today's gymnasts?). It's obvious it's not Sofia with the long shots and complicated maneuvers, but that just makes it more campy. I don't really pay attention to the music during the floor routines, but if someone chose The Chemical Brothers, that would be dope. I'm just sayin'. Drama-filled — oh no, did she injure her faulty ankle? — and easy on the eyes, watch to see if Janet wins another one for the trophy case.

I guess I don't really get this. Are they making fun of gymnastics? Does the last scene with everyone walking by the picture imply that no one really cares about it? Is it supposed to be funny just because of the music choice and stereotypical gymanst hair, clothes, etc? I am not really sure how to read it. I don't love gymnastics as a sport, but I think they are amazing athletes and don't deserve to be made fun of...if that is the intent.

hilarious. I love how she randomly grabbed the random and they combined artistic and rhythmic gymnastics (even though they're 2 diff. sports!) and i loved the Bela & and Kerri style pose at the end!

Sofia's body structure in this video is similar to Nastia Liukin's build, except Nastia has legs that can go on for miles! Both of their body shapes were the traditional ballet-type bodies for girls in gymnastics, but right now there are more girls with bodies like Shawn Johnson - petite and compressed with power. Timeworthy link though :D
