Piero Pirupa: “Braindead” - 3 mins 31s

Shaun Williamson aka Barry from EastEnders stars in this madcap music promo for Piero Pirupa's latest track 'Braindead'. Shot as a public service announcement with a twist, the film has Williamson set out an anti-drug stall before succumbing to the lure of illicit substances... and things get really weird.

From animated birds sparking up joints to mini CG WIlliamsons dancing on the table, it's a heightened depiction of what looks to be an extremely bad trip. And that's before the crew get beaten up by a rogue brain that's escaped its owner.

Wild and wonderful, this film seems likely to put off anyone considering using lockdown as an opportunity to experiment with psychedelics. This is your brain on drugs, indeed.
