Queens Of The Stone Age 'Smooth Sailing' by Hiro Murai

Jimmy Brown - 11th Apr 2014

Queens Of The Stone Age singer Josh Homme is the businessman enjoying a celebratory night on the town in Tokyo with his Japanese colleagues in Hiro Murai's promo for the band's new single Smooth Sailing. And perhaps not surprisingly, things get a little out of hand...

In fact, this is a brilliant thrill-ride, as serious saki-drinking and drugs leads from fun to obnoxiousness and way beyond. Hiro captures much of this in the tried-and-tested style pioneered by Scorcese in Mean Streets. But what is so transfixing about this is sensing something really bad is going to happen. And it does.
