"Rob The Bank", a new music video I co-directed with Dave Ramirez for Placebo's "Loud Like Love" Super Delux DVD Edition (out Sept 16, 2013). We got the inspiration for the video after watching the strong images coming from Turkey during the #OccupyGezi protests back in June. We heard from a friend that the devastating events were not getting any global attention, and we felt inspired to place these powerful real world images in a beautiful grayscale slow-motion world. The video also touches on the subject of child-like innocence and neutrality. We all come into the world being the same but are formed by what surrounds us.
A 90-sec preview posted on Placebo's official Youtube page went viral in Turkey and got 100,000+ hits on its first day. The full version will be available on the DVD Box Set.
Only a few hours after the release of the preview, the video was being talked about on Turkish news sites and blogs.
The following are screengrabs from the full video.

To bring some summer colors to the city, we took over an old, smelly garage on Houston St. and filled it with flowers.
Hundreds of people came in and spent time sitting on the grass. Later we let people take the flowers home.
