Apart from his heavy dubstep sounds and his partnership with Diplo on Jack Ü, Skrillex is also know for his highly outrageous yet always entertaining music videos. That being said, Sonny John Moore better known as Skrillex has unveiled his newest video for the track “F*ck That” from his debut studio album “Recess”.
Directed by Nabil Elderkin, the man behind Kanye West’s “Mercy”, James Blake’s “Overgrown” and Bon Iver’s “Towers”, the video for “F*ck That” feel like more of a short film than a music video. Now although, this track is not as intense as his previous tracks like “Ragga Bomb” and “Try It Out”, it sure does follow in its footsteps with its wild music video.
The video features French actor Saïd Taghmaoui, who plays a troubled protagonist — a fighter confined to a Moroccan jail cell with only flashing memories and bloody knuckles to his name. Saïd’s resolve is strong and he is finally released but unfortunately, he soon finds himself in trouble again. His freedom quickly becomes his downfall, and things rapidly turn dark before the video’s ending capsizes every expectation that had been built to that point.
Slightly over 5minutes long, the video is impressive to say the least as the dark and playful eeriness of “F*ck That” is perfectly captured through Nabil’s vivid visuals and exhilarating plot.
“F*ck That” comes from Skrillex’s 2014 album “Recess”, which dropped on March 14th. Watch the video below and feel the hair on your arms stand. Enjoy! 😉
