An amazing eye-boggle for Swedish girl singer El Perro del Mar by Filip Nilsson.

Those guys are The Golden Power from Budapest, and also from a bygone age. Filip wisely presents them in the raw, so to speak, with untampered unedited footage. It's enough to make your eyes water.

Filip Nilsson on making the video for El Perro del Mar's Change Of Heart

"The idea of this video came into my head when me and my brother Andreas Nilsson visited Lido in Paris which we do 3-4 times every year. This particular time there was one act that really hit me. Sandor Vlah and Gyula Takaes aka The Golden Power.

"They are from Budapest, Hungary. Two men, probably the strongest men I have ever seen. Balancing on each other in such a incredible way that I thought that the gravity had stopped working. Was it fake How can they do those moves in slow motion Many questions, no answers.

"When listening to the El Perro del Mar track Change Of Heart a few weeks later for the first time it hit me even harder. Such a brilliant track needed a certain visual treatment. Just one big, very big task to solve. Where are Sandor and Gyula

"We tried to get hold of them via Lido in Paris. But no one did know where they were. We searched for them for four months, and finally through some local contacts in Budapest we got hold of them. Sandor (the big one) liked the idea. When we finally could see the amazing footage together with the music it felt like we got struck by the lightning of love."
