How do you possibly following up winning two MTV VMAs and two UKMVAs all in one year? By directing an insane video for two of the biggest artists in the world - that's what Tanu Muino has done.

It's also an insanely violent one. Muino's video for the Post Malone and The Weeknd team-up for One Right Now pays homage to 1990s Asian Cinema and the shootout genre as a whole. From first to last, this super-slick offering is an all-guns-blazing, super-bloody, stylised trip through a dangerous criminal underworld - with possibly a record-high bodycount for a video. Even one involving The Weeknd.

The gritty narrative has The Weeknd singlehandedly taking on gangster boss Malone's army of henchmen - while Malone works his way through an army of Weeknd lookalikes with the scariest gun ever. The artists both boast a remarkable presence in their respective roles - testimony to Muino's skilful direction to combine the elements of John Woo-style action, with their personalities and performance. 

Fans of these heavyweight superstars will not be disappointed - maybe even from the ones in favour of gun control.
