well here it is, the wonderfully disquieting et cinematic, angst-laden humour noir video for Casiokids' brilliant lead single Det Haster! off their infectious new album "Aabenbaringen Over Aaskammen", out on Polyvinyl.  

Det Haster! features a mysterious youth cult that happens to have a very strange et rather "unhealthy" fixation with stuffed toys. directed by the uber-talented Norwegian director Kristoffer Borgli {whom one can deduce from his videos, also has a strange et "unhealthy" fixation with stuffed toys!}

Borgli's masterful Det Haster! video falls somewhere between the satirical sadism of Michael Haneke et the off-kilter, sub-culture exposés of Harmony Korine. there is also an enticing fascination with eccentric et transgressive playfulness/behaviour, perhaps the result of youthful ennui, that is reminiscent of Greek filmmakers Athina Rachel Tsangari et Yorgos Lanthimos, which heightens the tone, creating an underlying uneasiness et tension to the video. enjoy!!!
