Cat Velez - 29th May 2015

From Need U onwards, Duke Dumont has inspired some very entertaining, gag-filled videos. So entrusting the video for The Giver to Surrender Monkeys, a directing duo with a talent for humour, was a smart move. And their Giver is none other than Jesus Christ - who emerges from the surf at Venice Beach, and turns out to be a very Californian sort of Messiah. 

Brash and over-confident, this guy is bent, even Hell-bent, on making some miracles happen, whether people like it or not. And all he does is more harm than good. There's certainly the required Duke Dumont rate of visual gags - and a deeper message too...?
