Wacky and unhinged, Slaves's Feed the Mantaray has been paired with the fisheye lens & VHS DIY styling of Youth Hymns - their second video for the two piece punk band from Tunbridge Wells.

Caricatural and completely over-the-top, Slaves get sucked into a car chase in their underwater Mini, from which they feed candy to a manta ray before it catches up with them. Will they make it out alive?


"Working closely with the Slaves duo and their limitless imagination, we took Isaac and Laurie on an undersea adventure in their red Mini.

"As they drive along the ocean floor, they end up making a special manta ray friend who takes a liking to their trail of sweets but it quickly becomes evident that sweets alone aren't enough..."
