David Knight - 23rd Mar 2021

An unassuming old man wanders down to the supermarket - and attracts the avid attention from three outlandish characters of the street, in Rogelio's marvellously wacky video for Madrid punk outfit The Parrots - featuring superstar rapper C Tangana. 

Rogelio has established himself as a wonderfully exciting new directing talent, with work like his gritty, sexy narrative videos for C Tangana, No Te Debi Besar and Bien Duro. Here he channels the anarchic spirit of The Parrots' Maldito through the half-crazed trio - played by the band, presumably? - who attach themselves to the old guy: the guitar-playing busker-devil, the scary preacher angel... and the dirty tramp. 

They follow the old guy around Madrid, who humbly accepts his lot, even when they invite themselves over to his place, which they proceed to wreck. Who knows, maybe they're his kids... 

And its all as suitably nutty and viscerally exciting as this punk rock banger fully deserves.
