The Trivia Answer: Marc Jacobs did indeed do the video for Sonic Youth's Sugar Kane, and here's the You Tube to prove it. While the film strip may open with flickers of a baby Chloe Sevigny, we all know the real magic is 20 seconds into the frame, when Marc himself pops into view. He looks a little bit like a grunge concert groupie, and a little bit like Orlando Bloom in Lord of the Rings... which is about what we'd expect from the future fashion superstar. As for the clothes in the video, they're so sickly perfect that it's hard to remember they belong in the '90's instead of now, and it's wickedly fun fun to watch them streak through the screen, remembering that this aesthetic is why Perry Ellis fired him from their label! We can't think of a young designer today whose clothes have quite as much impact as these clearly did, but then again... We can't think of another soundtracck that's as tragically hip. Anyway, enjoy.
