MGMT - Kids (Video)



"Kids" was released as a single by MGMT back in October I believe, but apparently they just recently got around to making an official video for it. I suppose we can forgive them since the video also happens to star Joanna Newsom. Don't watch before bed though... it might give you nightmares!

Just saw the "Kids" video and I must say as a mother and my friend who is also a mother were quite disturbed and disgusted that you would put a little child through something like that just for a video- hopefully that doesn't f*ck him up in the future. That can count as a form of child abuse- brutal!!! Not impressed!

I have never been so disgusted!!!!! whoever the parents are to this poor baby should be charged with child abuse!!!! To let someone mentally traumatize a child is sick and cruel!!!!! Did you ever stop to think what you've done to this child, or how this will effect him. We have enough sick people in this world. I'm sickened by the parents, the band, the producers,and any other persons that may have been involved!!!! Very Very distasteful, God help us if anyone buys your cd's... In my opinion you all FU**ed UP!!!!!!

You people are so ridiculous. It’s called editing. The entertainment industry is actually quite protective of children. From the steadicam operator on the shoot, Ralph Madison: “All the baby/monsters video was shot with my Red One camera. I shot all the steadicam stuff. The baby was NEVER frightened of the puppets/monsters. He cried because he was tired, mad that he could not get to his mom (who was just off camera) or he was cold. The production staff, director, DP, and producers made sure the kid was not scared of the monsters. I know this because I was there.”

The child was not abused through being exposed to puppet monsters; he was abused by being taken away from his mother and put into a strange situation for the sake of art.
