Björk’s quirky, eclectic music may not be everyone’s taste, and this equally quirky video for her song “Triumph of a Heart” came out in 2005. Made by acclaimed video director Spike Jonze and shot in the singer’s native Iceland, her co-star is an Abyssinian cat, Muri. The loose storyline goes something like this: when the relationship between Björk and Muri goes sour, Björk goes out on an all-night bender which leaves her very much the worse for wear. Muri fetches her in his car and the two make up. I should warn you that the clip is very strange, and there is a good part in the middle where it is just humans, but watch through to the end. You will be impressed with Muri’s acting!

I have to thank my friends at the Daily Abyssinian blog for turning me onto this video. The video link they had wasn’t embeddable, but I put my human on the case and she found one that was.
