“Nightmare inducing” does not even begin to describe Elliott Sellers’s music video for Australian duo Knife Party. “Centipede,” which has more in common with a short film than your average music video, brings creepy crawly to another level. Drawing inspiration from the 90’s horror flick “Naked Lunch,” Centipede tells the story of an exterminator as he attempts to fight off hordes of deadly critters.
Yes, the centipedes in the video are real. Very real, and very poisonous. Which makes the exterminator (actor Wyatt Denny) and his struggle that much more intense. Amplified by the retro setting and some interesting lighting, Elliott creates an atmosphere of surrealism that perfectly compliments the flamethrowers and deadly bugs. This, friends, is how dubstep was meant to be seen.
