Kylie's All The Lovers video



1. Nice, subtle use of the Aphrodite theme.
2. It looks like a Noxema commercial crossed with a cotton commercial.
3. Are the gays there? This is Kylie World we're talking about.
4. You just know some dancers were backstabbing and cuttin' each other to be the ones to grope LaMinogue in the clip.
5. The overhead shots of the stories-high mountain of people are cool.
6. What's the deal with the white elephant floating overhead? Is she a Republican now?
7. The white horse probably represents... penis?
8. Speaking of which, did anyone get a boner on this shoot?

Edit: Who knew MuuMuse was in the video? Mmm hmmmm.

Nice observations, XO. I think there's an elephant in the room, and it is Republican. Maybe they've been invited to the orgy?

In all seriousness, with all the filigree and goings-on in the video, one thing shines above all else--Pixie K has NEVER looked more beautiful. You couldn't even find a shot from her teen or early twenties where she looked more radiant. How is that possible? It's like she's defying getting older. I'll take what she's having! Someone needs a makeup award now...

Count, Republicans never attend orgies: You never hear someone say "I had a nice piece of elephant last night."!!

I like the song very much but the only parts of the video I liked were:

Kylie
White Horse
White Dove

I didn't like concept. I've been a fan since Locomotion and been to every single tour.

I've also pre-ordered Aphrodite and ATL single.

I agree with some of your review. Thanks for including the video. I wasn't able to find it on MSN UK.

A serious fan. My review could have been more thoughtful. I suspect the embedded video will be pulled...

I'm loving it personally.
Oh praise the skies for a single great concept and one outfit!
The gays? At 1:17. Filling the screen!

*snorts*

the people in the mountain of flesh aren't *all* the lovers though are they?

Nice concept (elephant is a bit bizarre and the doves are a bit total eclipse, the horse is just pointless) - perhaps brilliant, but all the pretty people were just a bit dull... Where are the normals? It reminds me of shortbus, only with no heart...

Also, minoguelle looks a bit odd next to all the normal non-ponds-cream applying mortals, even if they are all smoking hot?

Scissor sisters still win hands down.

The same male couple making out at 1:16 is still making out at 2:53. There is also a male couple in the background in the shots with the slomo galloping horse, and some male-male groping at 2:35. In addition, there is an MMF pairing at 2:36, and female-female couples scattered throughout (0:26, 1:48, and perhaps 1:57).

Now we have the blow-by-blow, so to speak.

@smack - you know I really love Fire With Fire. I actually wish the Scissters album were more like it. That is one of only two songs that he sings without a fasletto or kooky voice. It's the only crying-in-disco moment.

Great video. Inspired me over at my own blog to write some childish nonsense about it (as you'd expect).

lutz said...

love this , but it does remind me an awful lot of Mylene Farmer's "Degeneration " clip. Slightly older pop icons having/inspiring orgies -hope it catches on

Devin said...

Fun fact from a friend who was on the set when it was filmed: the barcodes you see throughout the video (on the coffee cup, on the ground when the marshmallows drop) actually read "Love" in barcode

How odd! God(dess) is in the details...
