Michel Gondry Made A Better Valentine Than You So We Can All Just Give Up

Leave it to Michel Gondry to set the bar exceedingly high this Valentine's Day.

The wily French director has graced us with his own visual interpretation of Metronomy’s song "Love Letters." The music video features Gondry's signature cardboard stylings, placing the electronic group in the center of a revolving camera shot made dynamic by the various scenes painted across the DIY set.

Just in time for Hallmark's favorite holiday, we have one thing to say: You will never match the whimsically romantic feats of Gondry, so you might as well give up on that homemade Valentine now.

BONUS: Gondry is hosting a Google+ hangout with Adam Buxton on Wednesday, February 12 at 5pm GMT.
