Josef Salvat's Open Season video clip is hilariously gorgeous

The beautifully shot clip pokes fun at all types of film while draped in effortless cool.

To say that this clip is quirky is an understatement. Josef Salvat knows what he’s doing and he does it well. Calling out all of the clichés you can find in any type of film, he does this all while looking like a character from The Talented Mr. Ripley in his tan slacks and draped shirts.

Open Season is a track that stands alone with its oozing beats and soft vocals, but the film clip makes for a tongue in cheek take on the film industry. You are taken on a captioned journey that displays all of the plot points from the raunchy yet censored sex scene all the way to the most expensive shot as he lounges on a yacht somewhere in the Mediterranean.

While you’ll find yourself chuckling at the repeated sponsorship held delicately by a babe in a red swimsuit, you can’t help but notice the sheer beauty of Salvat’s surrounds, which make this clip all the more worth watching. Parodying decadence against predictability, the video for Open Season is weird, cheeky and very clever.

What more could you want than a tiny slap from the female lead, a gaffer munching on what I could only assume was a chicken wing, and a herd of freezing models? If the clip for Open Season doesn’t make you giggle at its unapologetic transparency, then you could possibly be a robot and if you are then please tell me how to hack into the mainframe of Woolworths self scan checkouts so I can purchase all of my groceries as brown onions.
