DJ Shadow & Run The Jewels 'Nobody Speak' by Sam Pilling
Sam Pilling's video for DJ Shadow & Run The Jewels is a convincing take on high-level international diplomacy that very quickly turns into an hilarious if slightly scary international brawl.
It's a scene that you'll be familiar with now. Political leaders of the world squabble and argue and things quickly become heated. This fictional United Nations meeting is more of the same; only the representatives of the US and UK are both lipsyncing the stream of poetic invective coming from the Run The Jewels rappers, at each other. It's Killer Mike Vs El-P. Nation Vs Nation.
Of course, just like in the real UN things escalate quickly into an all-out, heavily coordinated fistfight. And farm animals naturally become involved.
Pilling's clip is simple in premise but the execution is brilliant, with visual punchlines delivered throughout with perfect timing.
