New t.A.T.u. video

For some reason we here at Too Much Information (i.e. "I") feel obligated to keep our readers abreast of all the latest news involving the psuedo-Sapphic Russian pop duo t.A.T.u. -- whether they might be showing up at human rights violations in Moscow or filming some weird movie with Mischa Barton. Well, on Friday, Nicole brought t.A.T.u.'s new video to my attention (we first learned about this on idolator). Here it is for your viewing enjoyment. The song is in Russian (I could understand a few numbers that were in there), but -- whatever --understanding the lyrics has never been a big part of the t.A.T.u. enjoyment experience.

Ok, let's discuss. Do you think that looked like an awfully nice prison bathroom there? I mean that minimalist shower was pretty stylin. Her underwear looked pretty fashionabe too (and why did they have to gun her down in her undies anyway?) Also, what's with refusing your last meal? It's not like you've got to worry about your girlish figure if you're about to be executed. But then again I guess it's easier to get drunk on your last bottle of wine on an empty stomach.

As far as the prisoner being pregnant... is it weird that my first theory was that perhaps her baby was foretold by prophecy? Come on it happens all the time: Moses, Jesus, Willow!

The song, "White Robe" (Biely Plashchik), is from their latest album Truth which was released in September. It's kind of cracky and eurotrashilicious, huh? It seems that now that the girls are older they're singing isn't so screechy. Nothing wrong with that.

Oh, and Idolator also has some news about Finding t.A.T.u.: there's apparently a scene with Mischa Barton working in a slaughter house, and at some point she utters the awesome line "Fuck everything but t.A.T.u.! They're nihilists. Beautiful nihilists." Can you contain your excitement because I know I can't.

it's honestly the most ridiculously awesome video ever. it really makes no sense at all. i do love that the strip her to her skivvies before they shoot her though.

Yeah, what's really weird is that I had to watch it three times before I realized that that wasn't normal.

was it because you were mesmerized by her huge pregnant belly?

Meeg said...

Maybe. When they were leading her down the hallway in a hospital dressing gown that should have been the first indication that something was off.
