Cat Velez - 4th Feb 2016

LA garage rockers FIDLAR renew their collaboration with Ryan Baxley, who directed the band's hilarious video for Cocaine (starring Nick Offerman) for another comedic clip for Why Generation. This time they've enlisted the help of animator Nolan Fabricius in creating a digital world made almost entirely from emojis. 

Following the happy-faced bandmates down the street, they pass foodfights, a burglary, a spaceship's trip to the moon and back, before they reach the stage and perform to a sea of smiley faces. But the show gets a little too intense for a pill-popping audience member.
