The second NERD video – or 'Tutorial' – directed by Scott Cudmore and Todd Tourso. Like the first it centres on phenomenal dancer Mette Towley, but the video for 1000 is more controversial, diving headlong into the polarised politics of the United States. 

Clearly influenced by the work of Arthur Jafa - the great Jay-Z 4:44 video, for example - and Beyoncé's Formation, it starts with clips of news footage - clashes between white nationalists and left-leaning protesters - in a seemingly unmediated way. There follows a break in the track to include a monologue by Mike Tyson at his boxing peak.

Thought-provoking stuff, although it may not be entirely clear what message we're supposed to take from this Tutorial.
