Thor Brenne challenges racial preconceptions in his video for Norwegian rapper HKEEM. 

Brenne's video for Ghettoparasitt features a trio of Caucasian white men on a night out in Oslo - being treated with widespread suspicion whereever they go. They are turned away from clubs, made to feel outcast and repeatedly apprehended - and it's all because they are white (and not that young either).

Befitting the Norwegian setting - and in keeping with the director's trademark style - this is delivered in a deadpan fashion, which makes the role reversal message all the more effective.
