Mumbai Science 'Déja Vu' by Ehsan B.
As you may have noticed, this guy is a bit different. And having a face like a hanging basket is seriously getting him down. Especially when he gets the weed-killer treatment from a girl he likes.
Ehsan B's very watchable video for Mumbai Science's Déja Vu combines fantasy with gritty psycho-drama, as this herbaciously-challenged anti-hero tears up around East London, taking out his anger-management issues on the local populace, from street market goons to Porsche drivers - and then scores some 'fertiliser'.
He's quite a character, and Ehsan's done a great job. Or grape job...
"We follow our grape-faced dude letting off some steam, creating a bit of a stir with every corner he takes. Misunderstood or a bit of menace - even though his actions prove otherwise he refuses to believe he’s a monster - if only someone would take the time to understand him!
"The idea behind Deja Vu was centered around injecting a little mayhem into the mundane. An off-the-cuff semi-improvised story centered around an odd-ball dude with a beautiful deformation, good intentions but a bad attitude. We interpreted the track as a feeling of letting go and losing self-control - even if that meant getting into trouble (over and over again).
"Our heartbroken, misfit is just pushed too far - the unsuspecting passers by have no idea what hit them as 'beauty and the beast' hits Ridley Road market on a whirl-wind of fast cars, fights and ‘fertilizer’ - someone is bound to wake up with a headache!"
