Joe Stakun explores the delicate balance of masculinity and insecurity in this hilarious video for Pissed Jeans.

The gym-based clip, in which the band demonstrates how to do every single part of a workout incorrectly, takes things to the next level when they find themselves competing with a bunch of gym bros. Each piece of equipment misused just adds another layer of hilarity to the scenario, until the final shot of the video takes things to a pitch-black hilarious conclusion.

It's Stakun's fourth collaboration with Pissed Jeans, and his first video since last year's earth-shattering one-take routine for AJJ. I'm not sure if anything in the future of Music Videos will ever beat that, but this comes close.
