Ben Khan '1000' by Yoni Lappin
Yoni Lappin's multi-layered, leftfield and deadpan promo for Ben Khan's 1000, finds the singer in a waiting room with a beautiful lady where all manner of oddness occurs - bleeding statues, moving floors and an uncontrollable urge to dance.
"This video is about toying with a temptress" says Ben. "The sensation of being aware that you're dreaming, but with no control over your thoughts or the distortion and collision of those two realities."
"Ben came to me with an idea about being at the mercy of a woman controlling him in his dreams. We both loved and connected to the Red Room scene from Twin Peaks as a visual reference for his dream world and used this as a starting point.
"From there, we carried on discussing ideas back and forth and adding layers. Although it may come across as random, nothing is in there for no reason; Ben actually write's his lyrics on that type writer (although we did spray paint it green for the video) and that's Ben's cat in there too. I hope people keep watching it and picking up on the little things".
