Jimmy Brown - 20th June 2011

Glaswegian alt rockers Twin Atlantic team up with Ben & Jos for this fun, stark white then gradually very messy performance promo to their pounding Time For You To Stand Up.

Lots of mini-cams were used in the shooting of the performance - all destroyed in the process. "The aim of the video was to have a fun, rock n' roll promo where we got to seek our evil revenge on a band," Ben & Jos explain on the Agile Films website. "We felt a little guilty after meeting the guys as they we lovely, down to earth and enjoyed drinking beer! We went through the concept, they tried on their outfits and we went to a Mexican restaurant and chatted rubbish.

"The day of the shoot was much the same (without the beer or Mexican food), despite us covering them in black paint, then leaving them for an hour until we were reset, they remained truly chirpy and insistent that they were going to enjoy themselves. The atmosphere on set was great as a result."
