So, it’s not quite the X-rated debauchery it was hyped to be, but Duran Duran’s new video for “Falling Down”, the first single off the forthcoming Red Carpet Massacre, is indeed a head-scratcher. I’m not sure I have the plot straight, but a sleaze bag in a limo drops off his girlfriend at some sort of insane asylum for ridiculously hot models, where the members of Duran Duran serve as analysts, peeping Toms, researchers, and all around stranger lurkers before bursting into a full-band performance in front of a scantily clad audience forced to sit through proceedings, which might actually heal their woes. It’s no “Girls on Film”, to be sure, with its randomly oily sumo wrestlers, iced nipples and hairdryers, but it tries. Maybe, the good stuff will be released on the inevitable “unedited” version.
