Rob Ulitski - 3rd Dec 2020

Ehsan directs a banger for Unknown P, the world's poshest drill rapper - the creation of comedian Munya Chawawa - depicting a bombastic food fight among the vile upper classes.

Opening with a group of well-to-do chums having breakfast, the video cuts between a Good Morning Britain parody on a TV - with Unknown P in the eponymous Piers Morgan role - and an unexpected narrative full of quirky characters and hilarious props... and plenty of fancy baked goods.

Ehsan has been making an impact in commercials but here he shows that his explosive take on visual comedy is well suited to music videos. The film is technically brilliant throughout, with a terrific edit by Lucian Barnard. And the sound design deserves a special shoutout for capturing an anachronistic mix of old martial art film sound effects and contemporary action foley.
