Storyline

Two stereotypical gangster wannabes try to get lucky with two young women when the man himself, Aphex Twin, interrupts their crude discussion to show off his dancing skills. The women are entranced (as shown since their faces have become similar to Richard's) and follow him in his limousine to the beach. The two men watch as Aphex performs a huge dance (involving champagne and a very messed up female version of Richard) in front of them. Written by Daniel West

Where Do I Begin ?
12 January 2004 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

It`s difficult to describe what this music video is about . It starts off with a couple of home boys driving through an American street and their dialouge is ...how can I put it ? Well it makes the dialouge of the violent prison drama OZ sound like the TELETUBBIES in comparison . The homies spot a couple of chicks who try to whoo them with their romantic words and then ... and then ... and then things start getting seriously strange and downright disturbing as we see sexy bikini clad dancers with bearded faces shaking their booty to some techno beat

This seriously weird stuff but I can`t help watching it everytime it`s on a music channel . I also wish to point out that here in Britain it`s frequently played on the cable TV music stations though it never gets played before 11 pm . If you`ve seen WINDOWLICKER you won`t be suprised to know that

Oh and if there`s any home boys out there wanting to meet girls then get yourself a decent haircut first
