People impersonating animals makes for one of our favourite music videos EVER

Going to see BUG is a music video fan’s dream. Comfy seating, a big screen and two hours of the brilliant Adam Buxton selecting and chatting through some of his favourite videos, and last week’s show threw up this gem. Directed by the mysterious (I can’t find out much about him) Panteros666 for French band I Am Un Chien we see a super-simple idea executed with aplomb. Take some actions of wild animals, get the band members to try and impersonate them as accurately as possible, and set them up as a split screen. Voilà! Promo perfection.
