In Vincent Haycock and AG Rojas's video for Calvin Harris and Tinie Tempah's Drinking From The Bottle, we get a tour of LA and Hollywood from the big bad man himself. It's the Devil, doing the dirty work down on the streets, in the guise of veteran actor Brad Dourif.

This is an idea that Vincent and AG have been nurturing for a while. Individually they have become among music videos heavy-hitters, but they have worked together in the past – notably on the Calvin Harris video for Bounce a couple of years ago. In fact, this was going to be the concept for that one – until, 24 hours before the shoot, they discovered that guest vocalist Kelis, was a born again Christian...

So Vincent and AG finally got this done – with Brad Dourif playing the main role for all its worth – and the result is as captivating, lurid, and disquieting as you'd expect from these directors...
