‘Reunion’ Video: M83’s Possessed-Kid Friends Are Back

Quick survey: Of the recent kid gangs featured in vaguely apocalyptic (or at least chaotic) indie music video situations, which group would you most like to befriend? Your choices are the juvenile delinquents and Blue Man Group rejects from Jack White's "Sixteen Saltines"; the adorable mini-dance-warriors from tUnE-yArDs' "My Country"; or M83's band of possibly evil Matilda impersonators. Before you answer, consider that M83's friends can really wreck shit up — we're talking raising and then crash-landing trucks with their eyes — and they are also persistent. They first came to destroy things in the "Midnight City" video, and if you do not choose them, they will likely come back to mess you with again. Make the right decision.
