Uprocking pre-teens not only marry cute with credibility, they’re a sure-fire way to get people to watch your video. Just ask Alien Ant Farm.
Likewise, in his new clip for “Maximus”, Sydney Producer and onetime Riot In Belgium and Bang Gang member Beni takes cues from the Alien Ant Farm school of video making and enlists a limber-limbed crew of adolescents to wow us with their dancing prowess. Unlike that one suburban kid from Alien Ant Farm’s Smooth Criminal however, these guys are actually likeable and seem like the kinda crew you’d wanna go clubbing with (is that weird?).
The video was directed by the prolific Moop Jaw collective and also features the vocal stylings of a Prince channeling Sam Sparro so you know you’re gonna hear it all Summer long. Better get used to it now.
Directed by Rhett & Warran for MOOP JAW
