Hot Chip's new one, the debut video by talented comedian and uncanny Wogan impersonator Peter Serafinowicz, is a wish-fulfillment dream for anyone who a) would like to control a boyband with bolts …
Alex Metric and Steve Angello feat. Ian Brown's Open Your Eyes by Peter Serafinowicz
His boyband-baiting video-directing debut last year for Hot Chip caused a sensation, much hilarious YouTubery, and won an MVA - for best dance video. Now, for Alex Metric and Steve Angello's Open Your Eyes (featuring Ian Brown), comedy actor Peter Serafinowicz is back with his second video - and even more mind-boggling cartoon mayhem. And Peter is in this one too - his version of Sly Stallone's original, immortal creation.
The premise is simple: warm-hearted pugilist Peter takes on his most formidable opponent yet - a boxing robot. So really its Rocky meets Robocop...
Peter manages to pack in a full supporting cast from at least two movies, puts in a superb stone-faced, mind-addled performance himself, and then there's the impressively robotic ED-210 (operated by puppeteer-maestro Johnny Sabbagh). It all adds up to three and a half minutes of sheer improbable entertainment - and it's really not over til its over.
There probably won't be any more sequels after this one...
