A fast paced, video with a satirical script penned in a black pub in Ecuador – a place most travelers and locals warned the artist not to go to. It turned out to be one of the best places. The text was scribbled after a few beers, while salsa played and people swung beautifully to its rhythms. The narrative takes us through many moments of absurdity that we often accept with ease. It is a flight one won’t easily forget.

The shoot began in South America and ended in India after 23 days of a tedious process of engaging with random people in public spaces and asking them to participate in the video. The 7 minute film spans more than two hundred people from across the world. The edit took almost 9 months.
