Michel Gondry was genius as a video director
Somewhere I have his Director's Series dvd set, loved this video and the Cibo Matto - Sugar Water one too, along with many others
Michel Gondry is pretty well known, actually.
Upvoted you and everyone who replied with more Gondry love (although Sugar Water beats Star Guitar imo). Seriously people, if you like cool music vids, buy this.
Yeah, director Michel Gondry has a personal story behind that. He mentions it in this interview (about 1/3 the way down) about the movie. Apparently, he would have nightmares as a child about his hand swelling to giant size and would ask his mother to massage his hand before he could get back to sleep.
You can also see it in the music video he did for the Foo Fighters, Everlong. He has a lot of really great other stuff you can find on his DVD, my personal favorite being Star Guitar for the Chemical Brothers.
