Mad World Gets The Gondry Treatment For America

GARY JULES's version of TEARS FOR FEARS classic MAD WORLD is finally getting an American release - and maverick video director MICHAEL GONDRY is in charge of the promo.

The track - taken from the soundtrack of cult film DONNIE DARKO - was the surprise Christmas (03) number one in the UK, beating hot favourites THE DARKNESS to the top spot.

And now the 2002 JAKE GYLLENHAAL-starring movie is getting re-released in the country, executives decided to unleash the haunting song to coincide.

Gondry - who has directed videos for THE WHITE STRIPES and RADIOHEAD - recently scored rave reviews with ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND, starring JIM CARREY and KATE WINSLET.
