The video is shot by Roy Raz, who previously directed Monarchy’s “I Won’t Let Go” video, and features Dita extensively as the classic 1950’s housewife escaping the monotony of her marriage through sexual fantasy. The voice over in the introduction is by Eric Szmanda, who initially introduced Dita to Monarchy’s music, and is one of the lead characters from CSI. The photos are taken by Ali Mahdavi, the former creative director at Crazy Horse and an exceptional fashion and portrait photographer.
“Disintegration” was born out of creativity and mutual adoration. Dita Von Teese playing the perfect muse and femme fatale to Monarchy, a love triangle with no resolve.
