Barny Fletcher, the 20 year old Somerset-born rapper with a super-quickfire freestyle delivery, gets stuck in a supermarket, in Taichi Kimura's bright, breezy and very colourful video for Christ Flow.

With his old school vibe, somewhere between the Beasties and Enimem, Barny is a hugely charismatic presence in this entertaining piece, tumbling around the aisles of a tiny Asian supermarket in Elephant & Castle, London, as he admits to crying to his favourite movie, The Iron Giant

He even finds himself stuck in the freezer cabinet. Don't try this in Tesco Metro, kids.

TAICHI KIMURA:

“It’s rare to see a hiphop music video these days which is fun and takes itself less seriously. As soon as I heard Barny’s track, I knew I wanted to re-create something similar to what I used to see back on MTV when I was a kid, but adding in some modern elements.”
