Idles - "Mercedes Marxist" - headbanging office worker video directed by Will & Dylan of Directors 32

They had me already at the start of the office scene. It doesn't hurt that I like the song as well, but this whole grungy "video" look to the music video, with a grainy drab office somewhere, and a man banging his head against the desk repeatedly, yepI'm hooked. At 2:42 there's a nice screaming release as our headbanging office grunt hero rages into the void and the strobe light cuts are edited together to make it even more manic. This is gritty, grimey, desperate, and so very old school punk somehow.  Directors 32 directing team Will & Dylan created this music video with the much buzzed about band Idles.
