I mentioned Kraftwerk’s The Model back in June when I stumbled across a cover of the song from the marvelously named George Hinchliffe’s Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain.
In September I discovered that DJ Cummerbund had helped a reluctant Rammstein find their funky junk.
When Rammstein covers The Model, I think we’ve hit Peak Teuton.
Obviously, this is not the official music video for the song and, as far as I can tell, none exists. The footage in the above video is taken from Domino, the 2005 film starring Keira Knightley. It does work remarkably well, though.
How have I not seen this earlier? It’s brilliant!
Back in April, George Hinchliffe’s Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain released a lockdown cover of Kraftwerk’s The Model, embracing the restrictions of self-isolation to come up with some remarkably witty visuals.
The ukulele really is the instrument of the future.
