David Knight - 2nd Sept 2014

Yvette Paxinos - aka PAXI - follows up her video for Sherman (Animals In The Jungle) with her second for Tom Vek. This one smoothly merges Tom's multi-instrumental skills with a visual motif in keeping with the theme of Pushing Your Luck.

And when the images in the triptych start rolling, and the cherries and watermelon start appearing, you may get that urge to feed the machine...


"Tom Vek's Pushing Your Luck is my second clip for Tom. It features a giant fruit machine edit and luck-themed graphics. Not that I'm an advocate of gambling....

"I did this independently at Tom's request, and with minimal crew so it was pretty low-key. I wanted to highlight Tom's multi-instrumentalism for the first time with this video. And explode some cats."
