The Jezabels release brilliantly bizarre video for My Love Is My Disease
Watch the world's fastest man on four limbs tear up the streets of Tokyo.
Australian indie-rock darlings The Jezabels released their third full-length, Synthia, back in Feb this year and last week debuted a quirky video to partner killer single My Love Is My Disease. The video was directed by Jonathan Lim and stars Kenichi Ito, the world record holder for being the fastest man on four limbs. When first watching this clip, before I knew about Ito's credentials, I honestly thought the video had been sped up to make it appear as if he were running at super high pace, but turns out he's just a freakishly skilled, galloping beast.
Jonathan Lim explained how Ito came to be involved in the My Love Is My Disease video: "When I got the brief from the band, they sent the track and a clip of Run Lola Run…I started to think about how to put running in a different context, and for some reason started looking at videos of humans running like dogs. That's when I stumbled across Kenichi…If anyone has the need for a Japanese man running like a monkey, I'd recommend him."
