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

One of the great music videos
10 February 2002 | by rob5243See all my reviews

Eccentric Techno artist Aphex Twin has again collaborated with director Chris Cunningham to produce the music video for Aphex's Windowlicker single. The video clocks in at just over 10 and-a-half minutes, and is a parody of glitzy rap/hip hop videos with its use of limos, champagne, bikini-clad women, and gold chains. Two "homies" cruise around LA looking to hook up, but Richard D. James (the aphex twin himself) upstages them with his super- stretch limo and Michael Jackson-like dance moves. Cunningham uses a similar technique utilized in his other Aphex Twin video, "Come to Daddy", superimposing Richard's sinister grin onto the faces of various women in the video. It makes for some bizarre imagery. This video is seldom seen on television but is available on VHS. If you're an Aphex fan, you'll love it.
