Jimmy Brown - 12th July 2012

Just like the original, we're watching a dangerous, hybrid futuristic sports event controlled by the 'suits'. People get killed. And now they are also deadly robots playing... Its full-on, blockbuster action all the way - and a distinct change of direction from Canada's prevalent music video style of the past year.

The cinematic production values are as impressive as anything Canada have ever done - another sterling job by Canada's in-house production team led by Oscar Romagosa. They certainly had a budget for this one - the video is sponsored by Red Bull - and they've certainly used it well.

The video was shot over four nights at a stadium in Barcelona (not Camp Nou), with a large cast marshalled through a action-packed Rollerball-style match. Great work from DPs Arnau Valls and Pau Castejón and impressive skills from Barcelona post house Glasswork. The whole thing is just awesome in fact...
