David Knight - 30th July 2013

It's superhero time - with suitably awesome visual effects - for the monster sound of DJ Fresh vs Diplo feat Dominique Young Unique's Earthquake. But Jonas & François's existential superhero satire/homage introduces a costumed gang a lot scuzzier than the Avengers.

They cause mayhem in their wake, appear to be on the verge of annihilation, and aren't too popular with the local populace either.

That's in keeping with the video's tie-in with Kiss Ass 2. And Jonas & François's video does its job by engaging in the spirit of Mark Millar's ultra-violent comic turned movie franchise, rather than including clips from the new film. Great fun - and as ever, great work from the VFX team at Machine Molle.
