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

The most disturbing thing I have ever seen...
15 August 2007 | by (El Paso!) – See all my reviews

...and I've seen "Baby Geniuses".

What starts off as a parody of numbingly retarded rap music videos soon degenerates (some would say "improves") into some sort of surreal, in-your-face nightmare that straight males won't soon forget. If you thought bearded ladies were scary before, prepare to have your mind royally screwed over. Putting aside how revoltingly twisted the video is, it's also pretty funny, as well as expertly shot and edited. Chris Cunningham gets the glossy visuals of rap videos down to a T and the freaky shots work perfectly to Aphex Twin's captivating electronic song. This is genius.

Richard D. James, Aphex Twin himself, plays a big part in the video (apart from providing the titular song, of course) as his characteristic shark grin, as in "Come to Daddy", serves a big part in terrifying the poor viewer. Few musical artists have the screen presence of this guy.

Many will argue that Cunningham's greatest freak-out was his debut video, "Come to daddy", but as stunning as that video is it can't compete with the sheer, basic, and harrowing horror of "Windowlicker". Whether you're a fan of Aphex Twin or not, this video deserves to be seen as it towers miles above most videos of its kind.
