Five stop-motion animators, 435 bars of clay and two bottles of factor 50 suncream. It took ten weeks of seriously hard work from Blinkink to complete Radkey’s incredible new two minute Claymation video for ‘Glore’.
Directed by Nicos Livesey for Channel 4’s revised Random Acts strand, this psychedelic, mind-bending, face-melting visual trip will be coming to our TV screens soon, morphing the world of what Radkey love and hate. It’s made up of a combination of influences, from Celebrity Death Match, Jackass to Beavis and Butthead, with Radkey’s unique, 100mph raging hardcore as the soundtrack.
‘Glore’ is a track which will make you “wanna run around drinking beer and throwing up Haribo” according to Livesey, so he thought he’d better visualise that feeling for the video… and oh man does it have that vibe!
