Watch Glass Animals’ Bright and Shiny, Yet Unsettling “Pork Soda” Video

Glass Animals released their second album, How to Be a Human Being, back in August, but the English indie-tronica outfit are still getting some run out of the record.

Today, lead singer Dave Bayley and company put out the video for hit single “Pork Soda” and it’s a doozy. It starts with a POV from a food tray before moving to an elderly woman dancing with her dog and an old man wearily channel-surfing through fake ads. It’s hard to say the video is any kind of creepy (considering how poppy the song is) but there is something unnerving about how detached they both seemed to be.

The band also created an interactive site specifically for “Pork Soda,” on which you can flip through a TV displaying fictional infomercials narrated by the individual members of Glass Animals. You can have some fun with that here.
