The '80s teen movie-inspired video was directed by Lance Drake, who also filmed Muse's visuals for "Dig Down
" and "Thought Contagion
." The futuristic clip starts off with Matt Bellamy being pursued in his sports car by police officers portrayed by his bandmates Chris Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard. They appear to chase their frontman into another dimension and he eventually turns into a Werewolf.
Bellamy said: "Life on the road can bring out your inner beast, this song and video is about taming that beast, desiring a return to something human. Plus, Teen Wolf
Lance Drake added: "Our aim with 'Something Human' was to continue the journey that began in 'Dig Down' and 'Thought Contagion.' Pulling further into a simulated world we follow Matt, Dom, and, Chris on the chase of a lifetime - where something as simple as returning some video tapes becomes an epic journey."
