Vladimir Cauchemar: “Brrr” - 2 mins 52s

Vladimir Cauchemar is unlikely to front a public information film anytime soon. After all, the French DJ wears a skull mask that would make Skeletor blush. This loopy promo sees Cauchemar and his associates trapped in a smartphone, bombarded with vibrations, rotations, and intruders via USB cable.

The lyrics are a mystery to us, funnily enough, although terms like 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' and 'Lycamobile' prick up the ears. Director Quentin Deronzier's neon-tinged visuals also keep viewers on their toes, as the perspective constantly shifts and the phone itself goes haywire. Tune into its strange frequency and there is much to enjoy - perhaps even adore.
