*sighs* Okay, guys… Bear with me, but I couldn’t let this YouTube clip get by un-accosted.
“That’s not a good thing when you have a fire in an arcade.” And this, kids, is why we don’t watch daytime television.
I know that clip’s a few years old, but evidently it caused some brouhaha when Arcade Fire became the first indie act to win Album of the Year in 2011. And it’s hilarious to stumble upon the reactions of the general public at the time. (There’s even a Tumblr page full of screenshots of people’s reactions on Twitter called “Who Is Arcade Fire??!!?”.)
In case you didn’t know… I bet you’ve heard them if you’ve watched commercials during the Super Bowl or seen the trailer for Where the Wild Things Are.
Should sound real familiar around 0:21.
