Alex Metric and Steve Angello feat. Ian Brown's Open Your Eyes by Peter Serafinowicz

David Knight - 6th Apr 2011

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.

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 <em>Rocky</em> meets <em>Robocop</em>... 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... http://www.youtube.com/watchv=pk5kZ5_NYIw&amp;feature=youtu.be
