Luke Bather - 3rd May 2016

We've all been there - concentrating and investing so hard in something only to have it ripped out from under us by a cruel twist of fate. Ewan Jones Morris and Casey Raymond's video for Lemaitre's Closer - their first together since their MVA-winning video for Leftfield & Sleaford Mods' Head & Shoulders last year – displays the hilarious catharsis of acting on those impulses.

Even when you know exactly what's coming, this setup and punchline-style video is still be a fun and rewarding watch. Frankly, any video that manages to mix beautiful visuals with the cartoonish scenario of a strongman throwing a hapless, trumpet-playing schoolboy across a room is a huge, hilarious win.
