Cat Velez - 5th Mar 2015

After his superb videos last year for Inside Out and Work Work, Carlos Lopez Estrada's video for Clipping's Summertime is arguably the best of the lot. 

Described simply as 'a film about identity,' Estrada has superimposed cutouts of Clipping's lipsyncing face on unsuspecting pedestrians, beach-dwellers and fast food servers. Estrada interprets the track's theme about growing up in LA through this hilarious and captivating effect.

Fine ladies in bikinis, sunny beaches, dealing with cops, riding around sunny LA and ordering loads of fast food... We're in Clipping's world now, and what more entertaining way to illustrate West-Coast culture could there be?
