Jam Baxter, Rag'n'Bone Man and OG Rootz go for a meal at a local restaurant where the maitre 'd - played by Perry Benson - promises them extraordinary delicacies. And, in a way, he's right...

Gustav and Myles of Broken Antenna dish up an appetising comic-horror for Mask, where unspeakably monstrous plates of obscure seafood - that's mostly still breathing - has a grim effect on the pallor and constitutions of the three rappers.

The imaginative display of dishes - always just too disgusting to consider that it's real food - has been created with a very impressive combination of work by art director Jen Gardiner, 'food styling' by Huw Caddy and Matthew Harris, puppetry and modelmaking by Emily Morus-Jones, prosthetics by Cesar Alonso, and post work at Cranrust VFX. Very tasty.           


"The video is a surrealist meal scene inspired by 80s cinema, using mostly practical effects on a built set with veteran British actor Perry Benson, the film is a horror with a tongue-in-cheek approach like the films of that period.

"We wanted to create a PG horror aesthetic, which would gross out the audience whilst still maintaining the intended humour.”
