Duran Duran’s new single “Girl Panic”, the second from their 2010 album ‘All You Need Is Now’ is the hottest music video we’ve seen all year.Â Casting five of the world’s most famous super models to play the band members themselves; Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Eva Herzigova, Helena Christensen and Yasmin LeBon turn the dial up on sexy.
The 9 minuteÂ masterpieceÂ is shot in “mockumentary” style, with each of the women speaking in character of their respective roles. “We all have histories together; we came up at the same time. The careers of the girls ran very much parallel to ours, so there wasn’t a great deal of education that had to happen”Â says the drummer Roger Taylor.
Duran Duran hand picked Mark Ronson for the production of the video,Â who felt ‘Girl Panic’ was the song that most captured the band in the early ’80s, and for direction Swedish director Jonas Akerlund, whose recent credits include another stunning story through musicÂ Lady GagaÂ and Beyonce’s 2010 viral epic, ‘Telephone.’
