Spanish director Gerson Aguerri matches the blissful disco-pop of Breakbot's You Should Know with a sensual boy-girl love story in a beautifully designed retro-world - which then becomes a retro-virtual world.

After the couple start to discover each other in a physical sense in a Sixties-futuristic space pod, they literally get into each other's heads via vintage VR headsets and early-style CGI - which itself harks back to an earlier, naive concept of psychology...

This very tightly budgeted video looks fantastic, and it's perhaps not so surprising that Gerson is a new signing at CANADA - that is, the production company that's the base for the celebrated directing team. 

Gerson started off as a scriptwriter for a Spanish TV cartoon series while, sporadically, directing his first music videos. Then, like CANADA before him, he made a video for El Guincho that got him some serious attention. That led him to meet CANADA's executive producer Oscar Romagosa and the whole CANADA team, and then to join the Barcelona-based outfit...
