Björk ("Byerk") is super strange

So, I'm really easily distracted.  I was reading a Lifehacker article about something and noticed a cool picture on the io9 cell of the Gawker spam in the footer which led to a rundown of "10 Debut Science Fiction and Fantasy Novels That Took the World by Storm", some of which I think I'd like to read.  Someday.  And really just the two most sci-fi / lease fantasy ones: The Demolished Man by Alfred Bester and Neuromancer by William Gibson.  

Supposedly there has been talk of a Neuromancer movie project for years, but nothing has ever come out of it, according to the comments.  One director people seemed to be excited about though was someone named Chris Cunningham.  Apparently he is a semi-famous director who worked on movies like A.I. and such.  

But anyway, someone posted this cyberpunkish video of Björk "All is Full of Love."  that he made.  It is super strange.  I'm pretty sure the robot tries to touch herself at one point.  

Now that I think about it, I'm not sure who's weirder - Björk or Cunningham.  Although I must admit that I have no clue as to the underlying meaning / message of the song or accompanying video.
