Observin’ Bird

Continuing from the previous Bryan Ferry video is this far more creative one.  Mr. Ferry was still going through his beard phase here, while the video is loaded with futurist imagery that also looks a little fascist.

But the real reason to watch is the star of the video, an unnamed eagle that sits on a perch, observing all around it with withering scorn.  The makers of the video must have realized what kind of effect it would have, because it eventually gets projected onto the U.S.S. Enterprise viewscreen behind the singer, making its imperious dominance of everything it surveys even greater.

Seriously, this eagle should have had its own TV show.
