David Knight - 31st July 2013

Pro Green and Henry Scholfield go way back, making videos before the rapper was known much outside Hackney (their collaboration on Upper Clapton Dance back in 09 remains a high point for UK urban videos).

Now they've got back together to make arguably their most ambitious video yet for Are You Getting Enough?: a bombardment of vignettes, featuring a gallery of grotesque characters and uncomfortably believable scenarios, to demonstrate that everyone is getting too much for their own good. 

Pro Green surveys a bank of TV screens featuring news footage, shopping channels, infomercials - and Miles Kane performing the chorus – displaying several of what used to be known as the Deadly Sins. 

It was shot over three days in London, was edited into a brilliant kinetic frenzy by Thomas Grove Carter – and that little 'princess' with the fake tan and hair rollers is bloody terrifying...
