Roberto Surace 'JOYS (Director's Cut)' by Alex Southam
It's the morning after the night before... and trying to get ready for the day is quite a struggle for this bunch of super-hungover party animals, in Alex Southam's very enjoyable video for Roberto Surace's dance anthem JOYS.
While an angry girlfriend is pounding the door and unleashing hell on her stupefied boyfriend, his crashed-out guests start to rise from where they fell, and find themselves conflicted - dancing back into their jeans, their bottom halves almost ready to get to the 9 to 5, while their top halves still trapped in last night's party.
So we get a different type of drunk dancing... In a ludicrous and offbeat series of events, these guys don't really get anywhere, instead stumbling around the house in awkward unison until they all fall right back into place.
Appropriately enough there are lots of joys to be had here - and the track is something of a banger too.
