Director Nima Nourizadeh definitely seems like a fan of two things in particular: colorful, life-sized puzzles and Tim Burton’s first Batman film, or at least Prince’s videos for it. In Hot Chip‘s “Ready for the Floor,” lead singer Alexis Taylor switches between different outfits rapidly. He appears as both himself, the Joker, and a strange combination Two-Faced combination of the two, ala “Batdance”. He maniacally tortures his bandmates with puzzles and deathtraps, splatters paint over classical busts, and teaches them valuable lessons, such as: “if you gotta go, go with a smile” and “never rub another mans rhubarb”.
