Video: Sofia Coppola in Spike Jonze directed 'Elektrobank' (1997)

Taking a stroll down music video lane – two years before marriage, Spike’s Being John Malkovich, Sofia’s The Virgin Suicides, and six years before they parted ways – The Chemical Brother’s Elektrobank. As Spike tells it, from The Work of Director Spike Jonze DVD:

What did you have to bribe your girlfriend with to get her to put on a unitard and do gymnastics?

(laughs) I don’t know. She was such a good sport. Not only was she a good sport to let us put her in those clothes and let us tease her hair up, but she also was a good sport, because after half of the first day, she was so sore and tired. We made her rehearse and learn gymnastics with a gymnast, learn dance and a style of ribbonwork. And she had to rehearse and take it seriously. She was so sore and tired, and she’s not used to that kind of athletic workout (laughs). She would be all crank. I’d be like, “Sofia, uh, we gotta do another take,” and she’d be all mad at me (laughs) ’cause her legs were so sore. After the first two days of rehearsal we got her to a really good masseuse.

More MTV fun: spot Sofia, along with Entourage’s Debi Mazar in Madonna’s Deeper and Deeper (1992).

    As one extremely handsome and canny GR staffer stated again in 2007, “Never earlier than has a sport appeared so much like its supply materials”.
    Mass Effect as effectively has some good faces and
    animation (but in addition some kinda creepy,
    lifeless eyed smiles).
