Benn Veasey gives the performance genre a gravity-bending spin with this excellent video for Merthyr Tydfil rock outfit Pretty Vicious.

Veasey gets the band to perform their piledriver Are You Entertained? in a very challenging but apt location: inside a centrifugal drum at an amusement park. With the camera at the centre of the contraption, the fourpiece play the song as the drum starts to spin, and they become pinned to it's walls.

The result is completely satisfying, with the band continuing to play whilst battling against the effects of centrifugal forces - and clearly having a blast in the process. And as they were reportedly still spinning from the night before the shoot, that's all the more impressive.

You may feel dizzy, but you will definitely be entertained.
