Triggerfinger 'Perfect Match' by Joe Vanhoutteghem
Coming shortly after his version of a performance video for Editors, Joe Vanhouttteghem is now spoiling us. Here's his new video for Belgian outfit Triggerfinger – and he's treading new ground here too.

It's a fastmoving story of partner-swapping in the holiday homes and chalets of a coastal town - with a bit of noir thriller thrown in - almost entirely viewed from the interior of a car that drives itself. Ruben De Block, the singer of the band, appears in the back of the car - sometimes.
"If you can figure out the story of Perfect Match, do tell us," say Czar, Joe's production company. That might be asking a bit too much, but its very entertaining nonetheless.
