Rejjie Snow's visit to the dentist takes a nightmarish turn in this darkly comic video by Max Weiland.

Dentist trips are never fun unless you're some sort of hideous masochist who enjoys that sort of thing. So the idea of going to a backstreet dentist where anything could happen is a horrific proposition indeed. Yet here Rejjie Snow is, up for anything apparently.

The cast of characters here make the waiting room a darkly surreal place to be and the horrors of the dentist's chair get all too real (mostly because of the use of actual dental surgery footage intercut here for maximum impact). Dark, comical, stylised and somehow cool.

MAX WEILAND:

"It was an absolute pleasure collaborating with Rejjie on this video. He is a wicked performer and up for anything, including having a stick insect crawl all over his face.

"We wanted to create a backyard illegal dentist feel and then ram it full of odd and eccentric characters. A mad, trippy and anarchic visit to the dentist chair."
