A graphic, colourful and humourous take on a gruesome subject for Benin City's Bus, by new director Andrea Youth.

Violent death is not usually this bright and cheerful...

ANDREA YOUTH:

"My idea for this video was to create a series of visuals involving a bunch of 'disturbed' friends facing deadly situations. Black humour, bright tones, strong content and a surreal happy mood. I think the main inspiration came from the photos of Andrew B.Myers, who l really admire.

"A great team and an amazing art department did the rest. It was an enjoyable shoot, all the actors had a great time and by the end of the shoot it felt like everyone had known each others for a long time!"
