This has been on the Internet for awhile, but we just discovered it. YouTube user Seniorchang recut the climax to Stanley Kubrick's 1968 sci-fi masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey to Tame Impala's "Eventually," a song from the Australian band's excellent third album, Currents (which was #2 on Under the Radar's Top 100 Albums of 2015 list). The mind-bending ending, in which astronaut Dr. David Bowman (played by Keir Dullea) finally interacts with an unseen extraterrestrial intelligence, is quite psychedelic, which makes Tame Impala's music a perfect fit. Watch it below, via Consequence of Sound (whose writer suggested the song magically just syncs up perfectly to the film's climax, but to be clear, 2001 was re-edited to sync with the song).

Also, Tame Impala recently did a five-song set for Jimmy Kimmel Live! and "The Less I Know the Better" aired on the broadcast show. It took a few days for video of the performance to show up online, but you can watch the performance of "The Less I Know the Better" below, via Stereogum.
