One week later and the debate about Romain Gavras's video for Justice's Stress rages on...

Clearly it's not everyone's cup of tea. Of course it isn't. I'm kind of hoping that's really the whole point. But a video that people find genuinely shocking - whatever their reasons - and provokes a properly serious debate, in this terribly jaded day and age Fantastic.
