Following the success of “Oblivion,” which had her rocking out in a sports stadium, Canadian pixie Grimes is back with a new video for the equally catchy “Genesis,” and it’s straight out of Luc Besson’s The Fifth Element, with hints of Japanese samurai and anime. In the spot, directed by the singer (birth name: Claire Boucher) and co-starring rapper and stripper Brooke Candy (in cutout armor and bubblegum-pink waist-length cornrows), Grimes cavorts around the desert with a mace, a sparking torch, and a boa constrictor. Sure, the snake is straight out of Britney's 1999 VMAs performance, but “Slave 4 U” this is not.
