Georgia Twinn embraces chaos in Vasilisa Forbes' destructive promo for You Shouldn't Have F****d With Me. 

Paying homage to iconic TV ads and MTV-era music videos, the concept follows Twinn as she wanders around an enclosed white set, destroying any obstacle in her path. 

Flickering with black strobes and overwhelmingly vibrant red lights, the aesthetic is bold, highlighting the same features in the artist's performance. 

If I were you, I wouldn't f**k with Georgia Twinn either.

VASILISA FORBES: 

The white space represents her innocence... before she becomes the anarchic rebel she really is.

"Nothing screams ‘don’t fuck with me’ more than vengeful destruction, and Georgia holds nothing back in this video! I wanted to make a visual play on the classic 90’s slick MTV video situated in a clean cube-set build - but allow it to degenerate into powerful action and chaos.

"We chose to give Georgia’s revenge an abstraction; a white space representing her innocence and playfulness to start with, before she becomes the empowered anarchic rebel that she really is, as she goes to town on the clean minimal space with a black paintbrush and a baseball bat.

"I referenced vintage ad campaigns from Helmut Lang, Comme des Garcon and Calvin Klein as the jumping-off point for an aesthetic 90s style."
