David Knight - 6th Sept 2013

So lets all party like it's, erm.... 1699?

But Émile Sornin's video for Dizzee Rascal's I Don't Need A Reason doesn't just have Dizzee living it up like Le Roi Soleil surrounded by bewigged flunkies and gorgeous floozies. That's impeccably mounted as it is, but then Émile combines Dizzee's performance with gif-style loops. 

Absolute monarchy at it's very best...
