David Knight - 22nd Mar 2012

Andreas Nilsson's video for Miike Snow's Paddling Out was nuts. Now comes the second part of the Jean Noel saga, and its even more bonkers.

The alien spaceship which abducted Noel and subjected him to bizarre plastic surgery to turn him into a rocknroll Lionel Messi, has crashing to earth, creating deadly havoc in a playground. Now there are dozens of rocknroll Messis running around the crash site in the desert - and lots of cops with doughnuts.

It's all the unique comic brainchild of Andreas Nillson of course. Meticulously crafted, wondrous in its lunacy. And presumably part three is coming...
