David Knight - 19th June 2009

Long-time-in-the-making, long-awaited vid of MGMT's ubiquitous Kids by their main man Ray Tintori - and it was all worth it.

It's a doozy. A brilliantly, continuously inventive rollercoaster of a video - and it's well over six minutes long - and appropriate companion to the genius of Time To Pretend.

And don't worry - the little chap probably sleeps fine. Hardly any nightmares at all now.
