Swedish avant-pop star Robyn has released an interesting video concept for “Don’t F*cking Tell Me What to Do”, the latest tune off of her Body Talk, Pt. 1 EP. The song features a pissed-off Robyn describing a long list of things that are “killing me”, and to tie in with that theme her video—which is built around a trippy, retro-screensaver-style 3D animation—displays an endless list of Twitter messages from fans explaining what is also “killing” them. Use the #killingme tag to get your tweet added to the constantly updating video, thus joining the person who claims “this German guy who looks like Sean Connery is killing me!”
