Mastodon 'Show Yourself' by Robert Schober

Mastodon 'Show Yourself' by Robert Schober

Robert Schober's brilliant video for Mastodon is a horror B-movie pastiche, and an ode to anybody who's ever had a bad week at work.

The tongue-in-cheek clip charts the downfall of the Grim Reaper himself, as he tries (and fails) to kill the members of Mastodon one by one. We're treated to a throwback, nuclear family, corporate jungle view of the world with a nice reference to Alec Baldwin's turn in Glengarry Glen Ross thrown in for good measure.

A great stylistic turn by the director formerly known as Roboschobo, who manages to make you root for the guy who's trying to kill the band.
