Nelson de Castro and Carlos Lopez Estrada, both highly successful music video directors in their own right, have paired up to create this excellent video for Hook N Sling's Break Yourself. And it's a match made in heaven - or at least somewhere shrouded in fog... 

Out of the misty gloom, we travel back and forth up the centre aisle of a bus - initially a typical high school bus into which a boy climbs aboard and faces that age-old qualm about who to sit next to. Like something out of the Twilight Zone, this action is repeated with the lad encountering an ever-changing cast of passengers, and variations on previous groups, including possessed children with red, glowing eyes, rowdy jocks and cheerleaders headed to a game, and a church congregation complete with priest and thurifer. The dreamlike sequences also includes a carcrash, treated with the same degree of lighthearted absurdity, leading straight into the next sequence as if nothing happened.

It's an auspicious first collaboration between the two directors - and they also now have a new Vimeo account 'Nelson y Carlos'. An indication that there's more collaborations to come, perhaps?
