In The Killers‘ new video for “Miss Atomic Bomb” off of their latest Battle Born LP, we get some more insight into the love triangle first introduced in “Mr. Brightside.” The video opens on the dusty outskirts of Las Vegas and depicts an older Brightside reflecting on his unrequited love of a ballet dancer through animated scenes (with The Killers appearing in animated form as well). Eric Roberts and Izabella Miko reprise their “Mr. Brightside” roles in “Miss Atomic Bomb,” with Roberts thwarting Mr. Brightside’s attempts at winning Miss Atomic Bomb’s devotion once again. Watch the video below; The Killers play a sold-out show at the Susquehanna Bank Center tomorrow.
