I went to Europe about a month ago and while I was there I saw this really creepy/sad music video. I saw it on Viva TV, but they only showed it once so I quickly forgot about it once I went outside and became a tourist again. When I came back to the U.S. I couldn’t remember the name of the group or the song, but a quick Google search of “music video” + “child crying” + “monsters” soon led me to it.

The song is entitled “Kids” by MGMT f.k.a. The Management. It features a baby surrounded by scary looking monsters and in turn the child is freaked out. Even though this isn’t first person perspective, I’m guessing we’re seeing the world through the child’s eyes as everything is unknown and can be quite scary. But the video is still hard to watch as the baby obviously doesn’t know what’s happening and is truly terrified. It almost reminds me of the Little Albert Experiment.
