Muse Star In Epic Spaghetti Western

Muse Star In Epic Spaghetti Western

Muse have gone all Clint Eastwood in their new Joseph Kahn-directed six-minute epic promo video for new single “Knights of Cydonia.”

The expansive rock track sees prog-pop trio Muse playing as holograms in a bar while scenes include soaring eagles, light sabres and slow motion duels and kung fu moves.

There is also a love and betrayal and death by gallows storyline, with the love interest galloping scantily clad through the Californian desert on a unicorn.

The mini-movie filmed in California, Romania and the UK pays homage to Star Wars, Barbarella and Evil Knievel – all at the same time.

Director Joseph Kahn previously directed Britney Spears' “Toxic”, picking up a Grammy award in the process.
