Despite having held a contest inviting fans to make what would become the “official video” of Bad Lieutenant’s second single, “Twist of Fate,” Bernard Sumner and Co. have gone ahead and commissioned their own clip for the track. Maybe they had some time on their hands after two foiled attempts to tour the U.S. Anyway, check out the new video — directed by Steven Young, and featuring some kind-of-creepy, lip-synching marionettes — above, and the contest-winning clip, by Warner Brown, below. Which do you like better?
