Jimmy Brown - 15th July 2011

In a step-up from his superb stock footage video for Ratatat's Drugs, Carl Burgess delivers another winner for Kap Bambino's Obsess. And this time, the bonkers footage is all-original.

Actors were specially cast to perform a range of extreme emotions (the on-set wardrobe was then dumped in favour of the actors' own clothes, which just emphasises the wildness of their reactions). Then it was cut into a fast-paced montage (including bits of object-destruction) that perfectly reflects the hi-energy thrash of the track. Rollicking random entertainment.
