Still from the “Sticky Drama” video.


The artists Jon Rafman and Daniel Lopatin have co-directed a music video for the song “Sticky Drama” by Loptain’s electronic music project, Oneohtrix Point Never, released today by Warp Records.

Instead of actually describing the action–packed video—which is chock-full of very contemporary cultural signifiers—I’m just going to give a partial list of things I noticed on the screen: a swagboard, a dress made out of CD-Rs, virtual pets, a substance that looks suspiciously like Nickelodeon’s Gak, children involved in combination IRL and URL cosplay, prosthetic pustules, CGI geometric monsters, a cyberpunk-esque multiple-monitor computer setup (controlled by the girl in the aforementioned CD-R dress), and did I mention a swagboard?

All of this is set to a bed of music that kind of sounds like Skrillex in the same way that Aphex Twin sometimes sounded like jungle music.

Watch the video below.
