Miike Snow (who, if you didn’t know, is a band, not a person) released the music video for “Genghis Khan” in January, so this is hardly breaking news. The video has, however, been increasingly shared online, now having more than 4,000,000 views on YouTube alone. The second single of their latest album, iii, features an adorable and hilarious plot of a cliché evil villain falling in love with his James Bond-style nemesis.
It pairs drama with cute dance moves, more akin to what one would expect in a Fred Astaire musical than in a pop song, but it somehow perfectly complements the song’s serious content and yet fun, catchy sound.
