My, that is a big pair of scissors...

And the unfeasibly large shears cut the ties on a fever-dream of throbbing erotic angst in Si Allen's promo for Aussie/British electro duo Solomon Grey's Electric Baby.

Si uses a mixture of thermal camera and Epic footage to take the viewer through a series of Dali-esque dream sequences and flashbacks - accessible, with a cutting edge.
