Placebo singles chronology

"Special K" is a single by British alternative rock band Placebo, released on 19 March 2001 on CD and 12" vinyl, taken from their third album, Black Market Music. The title is slang for Ketamine, and the song itself is supposed to explore "the link between drugs and love," and ""Special K" is uppers and the rush of falling in love."[1]

Music video

The music video is reminiscent of such sci-fi films as Fantastic Voyage;[citation needed] it depicts Brian Molko and the other members of the band in an undisclosed, scientific headquarters where Molko is shrunk down to microbiological proportions and accidentally dropped into the mouth of drummer Steve Hewitt. The music video in its entirety maintains a sci-fi aesthetic throughout. The video ends with a shrunken Molko being sucked out through Hewitts's tear duct.
