Ratatat 'Pricks of Brightness' by Luis Cerveró
Luis Cerveró has directed this dazzling and cryptic pot pourri of tongue-in-cheek scenes, characterised by visual art, anachronistic lavishness, a bit of absurdity and number games.
Whether it be the band playing to a highly unusual crowd, a hand rolling the dice, a girl spraying 'PRICKS' on a wall, or painters showing their outsider art, each scene is part of a repeating structure that loops throughout, corresponding to an exact metric pattern and creating everchanging dialogue with the song.
It's also very cool. And in explaining his work, Luis Cerveró says: "This video is about predicting the future, writing bad graffiti, blurring identities, sliding doors, playing live with fake drummers and framing moustache portraits. Beyond it all a simple feeling should come across: the teenage spirit will prevail."
