In the new video for “Free Your Mind” from Cut Copy, the best indie-dance band in the world, Alexander Skarsgård plays a charismatic, cult-like character with an irresistible power over women and the rest of us mere mortals, (aka regular Alexander Skarsgård.) But in this case he has a long blonde wig on. From sinking invisible basketball shots to baptizing people in a pool, and staring down vicious dogs, there’s almost nothing he can’t do. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t reveal one flaw that makes him human just like the rest of us by the end.
The song is the title track from Cut Copy’s record Free Your Mind, due out in November.
