We realize there's only so much time one can spend in a day watching new trailers, viral video clips, and shaky cell phone footage of people arguing on live television. This is why every day The Atlantic Wire highlights the videos that truly earn your five minutes (or less) of attention. Today: David Lynch continues to be weird, we take a spin in Google's autonomous car, an iPhone saves a Chinese child, and a new Woody Allen trailer.
David Lynch fans, rejoice! (David Lynch haters, recoil.) Among the director's many many other hobbies is, apparently, songwriting -- and producing music videos for the songs he writes. Here is Lynch's visual interpretation of his single "Crazy Clown Time" (NSFWish), in which the director/singer more narrates than sings about a scary backyard party where lots of vomiting, mohawks lighting on fire, and topless girls occur. We don't quite get the appeal, not being big Lynch fans ourselves. Thankfully Lynch anticipated this and posted another video in which he explains the first. "It's strange because clowns were meant to really make kids happy but there's a feeling to a lot of clowns that actually produces fear." Coulrophobia or not, this isn't the childhood we remember.
