Aella Jordan-Edge directs this dark surreal video for Marmozets latest single Habits. A mannequin couple holds frozen poses in typically romantic, movie trope settings. They often inhabit the same space as the band themselves, until a final twist when the line between mannequin and human becomes blurred.

From an idea to put a pair of mannequins in public spaces, Jordan Edge moved on to using real actors instead. From there the concept grew into something that's much more uncanny and packs a serious punch.
