French directing team Parachutes' marvellous music video debut for Scottish/French duo Maestro's Darlin' Celsa taps into the gamut of negative feelings that a high school yearbook can inspire, and by channelling everyone from Terry Gilliam to Cyriak Harris (probably) take things to the ultimate conclusion.

Our anonymous middle aged protagonist flicks through the pages of the Mount Madness Academy yearbook for 1974, to view the alluring Celsa, the only girl in the class. And then, by a form of telepathy, he initiates an imaginative display of revenge on the photos of her male classmates...

It's an absolute riot of genius After Effects work, with an irreverent, super-violent narrative drive. And there's more than a few cameos from the French music scene among the doomed grads of Mount Madness too. Great stuff.
