Vid: Paranoid Android

Vid: Paranoid Android
Artist: Radiohead
Source: Smallville
Warnings: Spoilers for all episodes including 7.20, adult themes, violence
Acknowledgments: A small army of people helped create this vid: radioreverie initially had the concept way back in January 2006 (and persisted in persuading me to make it!) and provided invaluable development advice throughout, brokenmnemonic gave me hope that I might finish one day, supacat selflessly (since she hates Radiohead) provided meta feedback on a near-finished draft and talitha78 gave me the kind of beta feedback that makes you want to jump around the room with joy. The vid wouldn't be the same without any of them.
Notes: This week we bid farewell to Smallville's Lex Luthor. This is my tribute to Michael Rosenbaum's superlatively nuanced embodiment of the iconic supervillain. I hope that this vid is as open to interpretation as his performance.
Download: from sendspace or direct download (50MB) or streaming at YouTube, BAM or Blip
Lyrics:Please could you stop the noise, I'm trying to get some rest
From all the unborn chicken voices in my head
What's that, what's that

When I am king you will be first against the wall
With your opinion which is of no consequence at all
What's that, what's that

Ambition makes you look pretty ugly
Kicking squealing Gucci little piggy

You don't remember, you don't remember
Why don't you remember my name?
Off with his head man, off with his head man
Why don't you remember my name?
I guess he does

Rain down, rain down, come on rain down on me
From a great height, from a great height, height
Rain down, rain down, come on rain down on me
From a great height, from a great height, height

That's it sir, you're leaving
The crackle of pig skin
The dust and the screaming
The yuppies networking
The panic, the vomit
The panic, the vomit
God loves his children
God loves his children, yeah

ETA: If anyone is having trouble playing the file, try this.
ETA2: If you are curious about the making of this vid, I have posted about this here.
