Green screen gimp suits and powerful yoyo skills from the brilliant Pseudo Nippon

Posted by James Cartwright,

Just a quick warning for you; if you’re in the office and your workplace is the kind of environment that abhors obscenities flashing across your computer screen then best leave this one ‘til you’re home. Aside from effing and blinding, this latest video from South London-via Japan outfit Pseudo Nippon and friend and collaborator Myles Painter has it all: green-screen gimp suit, mad yoyo skills, infectious drum beat and some seriously post-modern behind-the-scenes footage of the video being made. Most important of all though, it’s a LOT of fun and makes us wish we’d spent a bit more time learning to yo-yo like pros during our misspent youth. I told you they weren’t a waste of time, Mum.
