Luke Bather - 5th July 2017

Ben & Ross blur the line between digital life and real life in this wild, cartoonish high school prom clip for Duke Dumont and Gorgon City.

Everybody loves a story where the underdog gets one up on the bullies. But how about one where the bullies are so consumed by their digital lives that the only thing that can put a stop to them is a bucketload of emoji-spattered puke?

Ben & Ross play with layering these new digital realities on top of some tried-and-true teen movie tropes and it pays off a treat in this sharp and entertaining satire for Real Life.
