"The Perfect Drug" by Nine Inch Nails

I am thrilled that Nine Inch Nails finally posted the video of their amazing song "The Perfect Drug" to their official Youtube page. It has been 22 years since this song was released and I still love it.

The visuals are based on the marvelous work of the artist and illustrator Edward Gorey (previously here). Watch the video and you will see recreations of some of Gorey's most famous imagery:

And this was before Trent Reznor bulked up, but I think he is heart-stoppingly gorgeous here. His pose atop the plinth at the :54 mark makes me melt.
