Featuring rhythmic gymnasts, sledgehammers and molten gold, Tim Nackashi directs the video for Fanarlo's 'Shiny Things'.

"The story for the video was a collaborative process between myself and the band, playing out the idea of how easy it is to lose sight of what matters most" explains Tim. "Fanfarlo has a great mix of humor and pathos...

"Over a few great conversations, we talked about a bunch of inspirations, ranging from the films of the surrealist Hans Richter, to the novel 'The Lost World' by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, but also to the fact that the Aztecs would sometimes make the conquistadors drink hot melted gold in an amazing and ironic act of retribution -- all of which found their way into the video"
