Bastille 'Bad Decisions' by Zac Ella & Emile Rafael
Zac Ella and Emile Rafael get together to explore a series of Bad Decisions in Bastille's latest video.
In a series of violent vignettes, Dan Smith from Bastille kills another version of himself over and over, as his previous incarnation makes bad decision after bad decision. Funny and irreverent, the series of characters Dan plays are over the top, extreme and surprisingly incapable at doing the right thing.
Shot with a public access television aesthetic, the main guru character is especially relevant in the current zeitgeist, where anyone can claim they are specialists without any kind of fact-checking. The juxtaposition of the TV persona and the guy we see eating in a run-down dive bar is hilarious and ironic, and each character following seems to get crazier and more absurd.
Executed perfectly, Dan's strong performances bolster the project, and help turn a very good concept into a great final video - a one-off collaboration between Agile Films' directors Ella and Rafael.
