As we have stated on this site time and time again, the state of music videos, since the advent of this thing called the Internet, is in a quite strong place. Enter this fantastic new video by Ian Cheng for the band Liars (whose new album, WIXIW, is really quite good) and their new single, "Brats." An Elmer Fudd character, a Donnie Darko killer bunny rabbit, and an intense thunder dance beat make this a good wake-up call for your afternoon. And then the Liars show up and fuck some shit up.
