Watch Aphex Twin’s ‘Windowlicker’ video on its 25th anniversary

It was originally released on March 22, 1999.

Electronic music pioneer Aphex Twin released 25 years ago his influential video from the ‘Windowlicker’ track. The feature is considered one of the most iconic videos in the genre’s history.

‘Windowlicker’  was published via Warp Records in 1999. The video was directed by Chris Cunningham, who previously worked with the British artist on  ‘Come to Daddy’.

The footage is a ten-minute parody of contemporary American gangsta hip-hop music videos, where two foul-mouthed young men in Los Angeles are window shopping for women; the French term for window shopping is faire du lèche-vitrine, which literally translates to “licking the windows”.
