Ever feel like a slave to Siri? Do you look like an imbecile in the glow of that smart phone? Tommy Trash and Taisun think we might be one iOS update away from total species domination.

“IOUE” is a funky, energetic bit of electro for the dance floor, but the music video is downright horrifying. It could be any T-Mobile commercial, except for the fact that the operating system wants to “break the 7th seal and bring an end to mankind.”

“With this video, we wanted to play with the concept of people's phone addictions and technology taking over the world,” Trash says. “Basically the ending is the apocalypse and everyone is fucked.”

“It’s a reference to how some modern technology is being shoved down our throats, and become an addiction that is taking control of peoples lives,” Taisun continues. “It may seduce you, but you may not like the outcome.”

Will Los Angeles survive the electronic end-times? Will that dude get laid again in the morning? These are the big questions.
