‘THE BOXING WORLD IS SHOCKED BY THE SUDDEN ENTRY OF THIS UNSTOPPABLE PUNCHING MACHINE’, the newspapers read. Yes, our ginger-bearded protagonist, The Beast, looks to further his winning streak by entering into an underground boxing tournament. No doubt in his mind, but have those daily Eye-of-the-Tiger training regimes prepared him for his mightiest opponent yet?
U Ain’t Gonna Win This is the first single from third album Swimming with Piranhas and is the band’s exciting music video collaboration with Big Blue Whale. Working closely with the band we developed themes and a story that would make up the core the music video. Storyboards were created, locations scouted, actors hired and extras recruited. Filmed over a weekend it was non stop madness but due to our careful planning everything went smoothly and the end result speaks for itself.
