David Knight - 8th Dec 2014

Belgian director Olivier 'Hero' Dressen gave himself quite a challenge in making his video for Guts' Want It Back. He went to both Paris and Shanghai to tell a story about 5 year old kids who want to take over the world from the adults. 

So we see a teeny wannabe mogul organising the mega-expansion of Happy Bear Corp in China, mini-cops and candy-pushers, and shopfloor workers - all finding its probably easier staying in kindergarden, and playing with teddy bears...

Hero's ambitious yet charming approach was inspired by the Studio School Voices children's choir recorded by Steve Addabbo and Bob Power at Shelter Island Sound in New York to accompany the track's lead singer Patrice Bart-Williams.
