Remember the cultish kids from the 1984 flick Children of the Corn? Well, we’ve found some children equally as eery in M83’s “Reunion” video, which is their latest single from Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming. The kids with super powers (or maybe they’re mutants, no one really knows) and unnaturally glowed eyes run through the dark city fearlessly. Nothing about these cute kids are normal, and trust us when we say, they are not to be messed with.
In last year’s “Midnight City” video, French directors Fleur & Manu used a group of telekinetic kids that escaped from a government facility. Picking up where they left off these mutant like children use the power of their eyes and mind to destroy anything that tries to stop them. We’ve come to the conclusion we’re on team glowy-eyes. Hey, they’re who we would call if we ever needed someone to, you know, pick up and toss a van without ever touching it. And don’t blink too fast or you’ll miss the awesome Adam “MCA” Yauch nod within the first minute of the video.
