Phoenix's new video is an irreverent reworking of cultural history by Chris Hopkins at Melbourne-based design and directing team Lost Art, where the band become an integral part of a rare '80s documentary about legendary and controversial fashion photographer Helmut Newton.

The band are seamlessly inserted into Newton's jetsetting '80s lifestyle, including casting sessions, fashion shoots, driving around Hollywood, and at an exhibition featuring giant prints of the photographer's famous statuesque nudes. Yes, this video contains vintage nudity. 

Newton's print work in book and magazine form work offers the opportunity to add some cheeky Phoenix branding too throughout the piece. Altogether it's a very cool product, commissioned by fashion video network M2M.
