Luke Bather - 17th July 2017

Daniel Brown treats us to a surreal ride through the streets of Seoul in his video for Merk & Kremont.

Inspired by a video of longboarder Hyojoo Ko that went viral last year, Brown takes a hypnotic and effortless ride through Seoul, encountering a bizarre cast of characters along the way, for Sad Story (Out Of Luck).

It all seems a little bit dreamlike, like such a scenario couldn't exist outside of a person's head. And maybe that's the true sad story here - that such surreal and beautiful fun could only be imagined.
