French Directing duo Allen & Smithee have created a sunny, seedy summertime scene in their NSFW video for Alexandre Chatelard.

Focusing on a set of retired married couples baking away on an idyllic beach, all seems to be ticking over nicely until one fellow notices three sexy denim-clad mermaids washed up on shore.

With nothing but good intentions (obviously) the man attempts to revive these topless sirens from the sea and, of course, abandons his unimpressed yet immaculately dressed wife to play a nice game of volleyball. It's the classic holiday story you hear about year after year.

Of course, like any holiday, nothing good can last forever and this lovely (albeit quite sexist) time gets cut abruptly short and leaves our hero looking a tad foolish. It's a very funny video with a combination of camera movement and facial expressions being utilised masterfully in order to sell some great visual punchlines.
