An extraordinary video from Dutch alt-rock outfit De Staat, in which band frontman Torre Florim stands among a growing horde of shirtless, muscular men, like a incanting preacher, and makes them obey his every whim. What appears bizarre, intriguing and threatening to start with, becomes increasingly remarkable. 

Florim collaborated with Studio Smack, three designers and CG animators based in Breda in The Netherlands, and Hague-based visual artist Floris Kaayk, to create this breathtaking piece, in which the horde was created in CGI, and animated using a different method from the usual crowd simulation software, to make the barechested men more realistic. And it took six months.
