The author of this notable black-and-white music video for V tom šírom poli is Andrej Kolenčík, known under the nickname Admiral. The song, much like the music video itself, was inspired by a dark Slovakian ballad about a coldblooded murderer. The director managed to intensify the gloomy atmosphere.
It can be safely said that Jaromír Plachý is a specialist in making music videos for DVA. After his successful music videos for Nunovó tango (2009) and Mulatu (2014), he made an animated music video for Vespering. The film depicting a little boy’s dream once again shows the director’s artistic symbiosis of the grotesque with a slight horror-like deformity and the musical style of the popular Czech duo.
This music video by a young French animator is not only a visual portrayal of the song, but also tells a sad story. Its main hero is a lonely introvert working in a video games store. He is head over heels in love with a woman called Dolores who works across the street from him. But he is unfortunately unable to overcome his reclusiveness and stays in his dreams and fantasies.
This clip is a beautiful merging of the typically highbrow sport of horse racing with the commonly misrepresented “mean streets” of Pacoima, the proud birthplace of Charles X. It challenges any stereotypes or preconceptions of race and social class which may exist in modern day society.
