      cool i’ve never seen his stuff before – i guess we have another “Keith Schofield thing” where a contemporary artist hasn’t been given credit for obvious reference in a video

        they aren’t the only ones to have used this trick though.

        Yeah I don’t think you can accuse them of ripping off what is essentially a pretty basic visual trick. It’s not exactly a skateboard on a pile of cheeseburgers.

        Nice video anyway – reminds me a bit of Spike Jonze’s vids from the 90s.

    Nobody makes a better, more creative, small-budget vid than the NNB

    Jeff, DSK, you should check out the rest of their videos. This is just one of their many cool vids.

    To be honest, I already had this idea a long, long time ago, before these Naive New Bastards – oh sorry, Beaters – and Romain Laurent were even born. I simply just never knew how to do it… Can anyone please explain me how this magic trick works? it’s really fucking depressing to still be in the dark. Many thanks.

      i would assume they are harnesses – it seems pretty obvious that it is a harness that is removed in post-production especially in the palm tree shots.
