“Surf Metal” (video) Remember that time your business partner talked you out of sinking all your money into a zero-g gym? Well, it looks like you dodged a bullet, as evidenced by the chaos caused in the similarly floaty weight room in which Walter TV‘s new video takes place. Sure, it’s animated, but the damage incurred in the CGI clip for Blessed track “Surf Metal” nonetheless looks hella painful.
As you’ll discover down below, filmmaker Cole Kush has the animated analogues of Walter TV doing reps and shredding their muscles, but a mysterious force upends the bod squad’s activities. As a pair analyze the aftermath, with nude dudes and at least one giant strewn across a landscape of broken barbells and smashed-glass, they enter a portal to another health-minded plain.
If you think you can piece together the clip’s narrative, which also features simian doctors and a most whimsical selfie stick, do give the video a peep down below.
