Icona Pop’s newest single “Emergency” is blowing our minds with their horror-themed macabre-eque music video, and I’ve gotta say, it’s been giving me the Heebie Jeebies. *shivers*
Oh, but frightened people can react incredibly hilariously sometimes. Just check out Ellen’s Halloween prank on her staff, Andy and Amy here. I dare you not to laugh.

Tiny cramped rooms, black body bags, gothic makeup and radical chop-shop stylish garb; we’re all over this. It’s our new ‘baby’ – Sorry, Justin Beiber.

Remember their top charters ‘I Love It’ and ‘All Night’ that spanned clubs across the globe and turned them into head-banging rave fiestas?
