The Prodigy 'Timebomb Zone' by Paco Raterta
It's time for Unfair Fight Club in the new video for The Prodigy by Paco Raterta: a young man and woman face ridiculous odds in a two staged battles for an ominous spectator. And that makes for a turbo-charged, relentlessly violent spectacle.
It's the second collaboration between Manila-based Raterta and the UK dance legends, following the rip-roaring Need Some1 earlier this year, and this one for Timebomb Zone adds to Raterta's growing reputation as a real talent to watch - one of the best new talents to come into music videos in the last year, and a thrilling action director in any medium.
This one, also shot in Manila, also benefits for having a couple of underdogs you can root for - who are nonetheless capable of some eye-wateringly vicious moves. It's not for the squeamish, but The Prodge's ode to mayhem deserves nothing less.
