Luke Bather - 12th Dec 2016

Ryan Patrick takes the viewer on a surreal journey in his latest video for Tesla Boy, and continuing in the highly entertaining yet edgy vein of his previous one for Nothing.

Set in a Chinese restaurant, this wonderfully bizarre whirlwind of multiple-personalities attempting to get some food and have a successful date just becomes increasingly more frantic and peculiar as the clip progresses. Prosthetic faces, karaoke and some incredible chicken puppetry (yes, you read that correctly) tell you pretty much from the start that you're in for a weird ride.

Cartoonish choreography and a brilliant sequence with an infinitely stretching arm 'lip-syncing' to the track makes this six minute clip fly by.
