Crossroads’ directorial duo Walter Robot’s dynamic and inventive visual style is the driving force behind a trio of uniquely inspired music videos for Grammy award-winning recording artists Gnarls Barkley, French-born DJ Vitalic, and Death Cab For Cutie.
Vitalic’s U and I finds an Average Joe on his way to work at his average job in a sprawling metropolis when his briefcase full of comic books flies away, luring him to an abandoned fenced off field. When he peers through a hole in the fence, he witnesses a fantasy world with a 21st century composer churning out fresh beats amidst a grooving sea of geometrically inspired shapes, trees and flowers.
