Nir Ben Jacob basically dumped the non-porn content of the internet into his mesmerizing gif-montage video for Document's Where You Are. This one, also for the band he fronts, is a little less ambitious, but more revealing about the band - a genuinely promising indie-rock outfit out of Tel Aviv.

So here we see Nir and buddies goofing at Document's rehearsal space at the Junkyard, with whatever is lying around, like gas masks. 

"In Israel, gas masks aren't very hard to come by," Nir points out. "The dog's name is Sophie."
