Alt-J – “Matilda”

I don’t know about you, but between the Senate drama going on in our nation’s capital and the crack-smoking mayoral scandal at the municipal level in Toronto, the constant news of our sub-par politicians has made me very angry and has given me a splitting headache.  If you feel the same, this fan-made video for Alt-J’s “Matilda” may be the perfect distraction.

You likely already know that the song is based on Luc Besson’s 1994 film Léon: the Professional. Annika Albert took this knowledge and edited scenes from the Besson classic to fit seamlessly with its new soundtrack – so seamless in fact, that it landed her a spot in the Dutch Film Academy, according to one of her comments.  Not too shabby! Maybe there’s a career creating movie trailers in her future.
