From the new Massive Attack album Heligoland - out today - comes the third video. And yes, it's the same track as Baillie Walsh's bullfighting film, which gives some indication that this isn't exactly panning out to be a typical campaign.

A city rendered in CGI is decimated by a catastrophic event - and frozen at the point of destruction. And the camera travels through the incredible detail of this 3D photo to reveal it's surprising cause. Extraordinary.
