Depeche Mode’s “Wrong”

On the one hand, you know, Depeche Mode: they’re still alive and kicking. Yay. And the song is bearable, if a touch predictable.

On the other hand, although the video is pretty damn creepy, somehow it’s not creepy enough. It starts out strong, and then we figure out what’s happening, and then we’re like, “Oh, I get it. Now what?” And then it’s over, and we’re all like, “Really? You’re putting together a video for Depeche freakin’ Mode, and that’s the best you could come up with?” It’s the cinematic equivalent of writing yourself into a corner: someone didn’t know how to end it.
