Cat Velez - 2nd June 2015

Francis Wallis has directed this quirky and fun video for Hard Rock Sofa & Skidka's Arms Around Me, shot in South Africa, which follows the highly flexible Jabu as he literally “makes moves” to impress a girl who runs the till at a local gas station.

Contortionism and some mightily impressive hat tricks prevail as we watch Jabu pull out some mindbending and even stomach-churning movements with his pal JR.

"We actually shot this last November, so its nice to see it finally released," says Francis. "JR and Jabu where amazing and really carry the video. I’m happy that they can finally see it too.”
