Director: Marco Bizzarro
WARNING: Both embedded videos and the podcast are uncensored and NSFW
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Jonas Akerlund should be very flattered by this weeks video.
Italian band Thisorder and director Marco Bizzarro have put together a video for the track Unus that is clearly an homage to Akerlund's 1997 video for 'Smack My Bitch Up' by The Prodigy.
Both videos are a POV explorations of reprehensible nights out. While Akerlund and The Prodigy go for a general bad behaviour night with a strong twist, Bizzarro and Thisorder follow a pimp on his nightly business with a much more subtle and clever twist. There is also some excellent animation work in the Thisorder video that adda an extra layer of cool.
Overall it's a very well executed video that stands on it's own merits as well as being a reverent updating of The Prodigy's video.
