Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard 'New Age Millennial Magic' by Vasilisa Forbes
Vasilisa Forbes explores overconsumption and excess in her satirical promo for retro power-popsters Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard.
If you've never seen a singer force-fed junk food whilst being pinned down by sugary snacks, buckle up, you're in for a treat.
Drowning in this sea of garbage and waste, we see the alternative indie group in a series of vibrant vignettes, shot in a mesmerisingly surreal fashion - with plenty of wide-angle lenses and awkward angles to elevate this effect.
Forbes plays on the themes of the track by creating a literal world that echoes the issues staring us dead in the face, and does so in a tongue-in-cheek yet lamenting manner.
We collected the waste that accumulated at home and in our offices, and used it to dress the set.
"Trapped in a glutinous, over-consuming world, Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard are literally caked in the display of our millennial consumption. The lyrics talk of our endless online shopping, accumulation of materials and excessive waste, air pollution and disregard for the planet.
"So I took Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard on a journey of over-consumption, seeing them overwhelmed by trash, discarded clothing, old shoes, uneaten food. We collected the recycling waste that accumulated at home and in our respective offices, and used it to dress the set, with real recycled clothing - showing just a fraction of the way we live amongst ever accumulating pollution.
"The video was released on Earth Day as a satirical reminder that our planet is vital to us."
