Anna Pickard, writing on the Guardian web site, reviews the video for the Pet Shop Boys’ “Integral”:
On a grey London bridge, the camera focuses on a series of pixellated images on posters. The posters change quickly enough to create the illusion of motion. Like a flip book. Or a music video.
In the background, commuters hunch against the rain and move in jerky fast-forward, blurred next to the silent, shifting pixels.
Yeah! Stick ‘em up, punk: it’s the fun lovin’ Pet Shop Boys!
When I said “Stick ‘em up punk, etc,” what I actually meant was “Stick ‘em up Home Office and other government departments involved in the design and implementation of the National Identity Scheme: it’s the disapproving Pet Shop Boys!” But it didn’t roll off the tongue so well.
