UNICEF & The Killers: Goodnight, Travel Well

David Slade directs a powerful, human trafficking a la music video tagged with Some Things Cost More Than You Realise and underscores it with The Killers – Goodnight, Travel Well – from their third studio album – Day & Age. The PSA music video is the second collaboration between UNICEF, MTV EXIT (End Exploitation & Trafficking) and the US Agency for International Development, the first launched in 2008 featuring Radiohead’s All I Need.

We are deeply shocked and appalled that women and children are forced into such exploitative situations, said a spokesperson for The Killers. We hope that through MTV’s efforts, and this powerful video, millions of people across the world learn about this tragic form of modern-day slavery. The video’s creative concept was developed by the Australian advertising agency CRC, with support from the UK music consultancy Huge Music.

Thom Yorke Writes Reserve Result (RR)

We checked our feature film mypsace.com/borland_film account for updates and then moved on to our news blog channel myspace.com/reserveresult account and to our delight; we received No Surprises lyrics as a comment from Thom Yorke / Radiohead.

Thom Yorke (Radiohead) comments Reserve Result (RR):

A heart thats full up like a landfill,
A job that slowly kills you,
Bruises that wont heal
You were so tired, happy,
Bring down the government,
They dont, they dont speak for her
Ill take the quiet life, a handshake of carbon monoxide

No alarms and no surprises, no alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
Silent, silent
This is my final fit, my final bellyache with
No alarms and no surprises, no alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises, please

Such a pretty house, such a pretty garden
No alarms and no surprises, no alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises, please
