Finn Keenan takes the traditional comedy dance video and twists it into a surprisingly dark place with his video for MK.

It all starts innocently enough, with a family guy making a sandwich in a revved-up quick edit style, like a normal high-energy music vid - until we realise that this quick-cut, looping, 'being in a music video' behaviour is actually a condition he has, in an otherwise normal world.

FINN KEENAN:

"I wanted to make a video people could really relate to.

So I suppose at its core this is a video about relationships and the struggles we go through maintaining healthy ones. That, and sandwiches."
