Miles Fisher :: "This Must Be The Place" [Video]

Things we know: Miles Fisher looks astonishingly like Tom Cruise. For the purposes of this video, he's transformed twice: once into Christian Bale and then once into Patrick Bateman. The song is David Byrne's "This Must Be The Place," though a more obviously layered version; the vocal loops end up being the back-bone of the arrangement. The concept is a cheeky take on Bale's American Psycho. In a complex and not-complex way, this is one of the best things I've seen in a while - the commitment, the attention to detail, and the (yep) execution are outstanding. You can go get Fisher's whole EP for free which includes the cover at MilesFisher.com.

There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman; some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable... I simply am not there.
