Maegan Houang has directed this quirky video for Skylar Spence's I Can't Be Your Superman - part-drama, part-surreal musical comedy – where a brave cleaner has to use unconventional tactics to fight off gangsters who terrorise the owner of a nail salon.

The consequence is a surprising yet awesome dance routine featuring masked manicurist dancers and a bunch of big fingernails. What sort of dangerous mind-altering chemicals do they use in nail salons anyway...?
