All I Ever Wanted To Do Was Wear A Gray Suit

The video of "After Dark," a song by Asian Kung-fu Generation (whose song "Blackout" was featured here in November) has been awarded the Space Shower Award for Best Rock Video.

The video explores, humorously, the struggle against and final acceptance of personal difference. It seems to find the rejection of fear of difference liberating and of tremendous social value.

Perhaps the video should be required viewing for anyone asserting the existence of a happy (or exhausted) national to conformism.



Hat tip to Sparkplugged.
