Director Hammy teams up with Feed Me & Nina Nesbitt to create this surreal infomercial-inspired video.

There's something quite surreal about a regular, straight-faced infomercial at the best of times. Somebody waxing lyrical about expensive candles or getting downright evangelical about a power juicer is compelling viewing in its own right. So when Hammy takes the format and uses it to sell rave gear, well things get pretty odd pretty quickly.

Feed Me's little green mascot is on hand to help demo the products with Nina Nesbitt, which turns into a sicky and repetitive lo-fi nightmare. The bizarre video testimonials from satisfied customers really help to sell the whole performance too.
