A wonderfully subversive little number from Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling - aka Becky and Joe - for New Zealand band Unknown Mortal Orchestra's rather lovely Swim And Sleep (Like A Shark), which involving a man trying to find something more rewarding than surreptiously peeping at naked girls - told through the medium of puppetry.

The darkly comic tone is set right from the start, and there is really no better way than serving up this contentious subject matter. When he attempts to redeem himself from his voyeurism addiction with cookery and art, even the horse he's painting is gets in on the derision.

Becky created the puppets and together with Joe, they create a sharp grown-up comedy in the manner of their work with THIS IS IT, like Don't Hug Me I'm Scared... (although totally different from their last video for Tame Impala). And never mind it just puppets, it's definitely NSFW...
