Placebo Interactive Video

August 28th, 2009 admin 2 comments

Placebo has released a new single called “The Never-Ending Why”, which is accompanied by a fantastic music video, created by Champagne Valentine.

After a lot of hard work, the result turned out, if we may say so ourselves, amazingly cool!

Check out the linear video here, and try the interactive here.
