Sure, Spike Jonze is now the acclaimed Oscar-nominated director of Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, and Where the Wild Things Are. But he built his rep directing innovative music videos for the likes of Weezer, Björk, Fatboy Slim, and Kanye West over the last two decades. Recently, a video for LCD Soundsystem’s “Drunk Girls” was posted to Youtube with the tags “spike” and “jonze”. Today, Pitchfork got confirmation from the band’s UK label that the video was indeed co-directed by Jonze and LCD frontman James Murphy.
