A juicy video for Ninja artist Slugabed's Sex by Chris Ullens - featuring Slugabed's Turbo Juicer 4000.

The video takes the form of a retro infomercial which demonstrates how the Turbo Juicer turns crushed audio-tapes into the best juice you've ever tasted, via a complicated yet delightful (stop-frame animated) process...

"Martin and Gregg (Slugabed) approached me with £1900, a great track and a very open mind," explains Chris. "With the cool track they had, very upbeat and built with loops, I saw the possibility to go crazy with the animation and do something I've been wanting to make for a while, so my treatment was over the top ambitious. We all loved it and that led me into shooting for seven weeks, including Saturdays, many Sundays and a lot of nights on my own. It was epic, but I'm definitely happy now!"
