Promonews - 21st Oct 2019

Fresh off a UKMVA nomination, Shan Phearon fires some postmodern pastiche harkening back to a naughty Noughties for iconic visualist Fatboy Slim and his new weapon of choice, Ocean Wisdom.

High-octane English satire, grotesque world building and rambunctious pop references that wink at everything from Busta Rhymes animatronics to Guy Ritchie, JP Jeunet and even Aphex Twin's granny, the clip taps into a tongue-in-cheek, post-woke era sense of risque.

Looks like this fat boy is the updated definition of the classic Norman Cooke t-shirt slogan "I'm #1, So Why Try Harder"...

Watch the uncensored version above now.
