Of course, we don’t expect Dali Clocks to melt in real life, and we don’t expect art to be realistic. Still, taking something in one context into another is a wonderful way to see it anew, with fresh eyes.

    The video was great… when on Mute. The soundtrack is terrible, all I could hear was music with faint dialog in the background that kept saying "I always wanted to be a model" and some other rambling that was too overpowered by the terrible music.
