Röyksopp Happy Up Here

This is Official video for the first single from the album Junior! Directed by Reuben Sutherland

It features panning shots of a cityscape, with floating boxes lit up by light bulbs. It is eventually made apparent that the boxes are a 3D version of the aliens featured in the old arcade classic Space Invaders and the video is subsequently played out like the game, with cars on the ground serving as the defence. The video ends when the remaining aliens retreat.


What do you think about this music video and the inclusion of a classic game? Let me know in the comments section.
