Bjork's New Video: Weird Even for Bjork

I love Bjork's videos in part because I like a lot of her music—but more than that, I can always count on her for big-bang spectacle.

The video cost over $100,000 and nine months to make, since the whole thing is shot in stereoscopic 3-D. Instead of collaborating with her usual partner, avant-garde kookster Michel Gondry, Bjork teamed up with geek-chic directors Isaiah Saxon and Sean Hellfritsch, who admitted they to get inspired for the video, they tripped on mushrooms while walking around in nature (uh, it shows).
