My High (ft. Aminé, slowthai)

by Syd Briscoe

Disclosure: “My High (ft. Aminé, slowthai)” - 4 mins 28s

A trip to the emergency room takes an unexpected turn in this intriguing promo for Disclosure's latest single 'My High'. Opening with a car crash and then, well, becoming a car crash, the film sees an unfortunate bloke liberated from hospital while strapped to a gurney.

He's quickly whisked off on a whirlwind tour of Mexico City, although not one many tourists would prefer. Think 'Gringo' meets the convoy scene from 'Sicario' and you're not far off.

The promo operates at a breakneck pace which matches the song's relentless, pulsing beat. Director Simon Cahn handles the full-throttle experience with aplomb, keeping the visuals sexy, horrifying, and amusing by turns. Not one for the faint of heart.
