With a title like “Headless,” you’d think the official fan-made Hella video would be a little creepy. If so, you’d be right. Director Bootleg Jedi has a simple concept: film an inflatable man. But the frantic speed of the action makes it look far more disturbing than it should be. Rather than seeing the jacket slowly inflate due to an attached pump, it looks like something strange and alien is happening to the man. Throw in some quick, shaky cuts to other inflatable things like a parade floats and you’ve got a freaky video out of something that’s a little offbeat.
“Headless” is off Hella’s debut album, Tripper, due out August 30th through Sargant House.
Directed by: Bootleg Jedi
