British electro band Hot Chip has been playing a cover of Bruce Springsteen's classic "Dancing in the Dark" at thier live shows for awhile now, and just earlier today finally released a video for their techno tinged version of the song.

Beginning and ending with clips taken from '80s and '90s self-improvement infomercials, the video artfully connects nostalgia for the past with the song's themes of self hatred and loneliness.
