Franz Ferdinand's 'Evil Eye' Video is All Your Goriest Fantasies Come to Life

'Blurred Lines' Director Diane Martel Gets Gruesome

Published on Sep 10, 2013

Editor's Pick

Diane Martel ("Blurred Lines," and "We Can't Stop,") turns to 70s-era horror for Franz Ferdinand's music video for "Evil Eye." The video, which gets its inspiration from the old-school title of the song, features a bunch of disconnected, gross images that are more likely to make you giggle than make your stomach turn -- from a talking belly, hacked limbs, lots of ketchup-esque blood and of course, a disconnected eyeball.
