Biting Elbows Biting Elbows Insane Office Escape 2 Video: A First Person Secret Agent Short Film

When VHS 3 gets a green light, Ilya Naishuller should get a spot on the directing roster. Naishuller directed the music video for Biting Elbows’ “Bad Motherf***er” – a spiritual sequel to the video for ‘The Stampede’ (aka ‘Insane Office Escape’). It’s an absolutely mesmerizing, exhilarating, violent, and very bloody five-minute chase sequence – all shot from the handheld, first person perspective.

Whether the Russian indie-punk band’s music is your thing or not, after catching this video, you’ll undoubtedly be scarred/impressed by some of the imagery. We’ve got vicious dog attacks, a car chase, building scaling, a massive explosion, and so much more.

WARNING: This videos are filled with violence and blood, and are absolutely NSFW!

Naturally my producing brain kicks in first, running through a laundry list of insurance, safety, special effects, and locations questions. They had an animal trainer on set, right? Are all the actors professional stuntmen? What office space would permit a production to blowout glass windows and splatter walls with blood? What’s practical and what’s done in post? Did that little boy’s parents approve?

Clearly this baby is a major visual achievement with a sky-high production value, but what makes the video for “Bad Motherf***er” further stand out is that it’s got a story and actually manages to make the viewer feel connected to the main character – something many feature length found footage films fail to achieve.

The “Bad Motherf***er” music video actually would have made for an excellent entry in The ABC’s of Death.

Can we campaign for Naishuller to snag a spot in the VHS lineup – should we get a third installment? All this music video would need is reason for the lead to be recording the experience and a little more meat to the whole time travel device scenario and we’d have a solid 15-minute short on our hands.

  1. Totally agree! Great music and great visuals… And the hand-held camera effects were just perfect! Loved it

  2. All this music video would need is reason for the lead to be recording the experience and a little more meat to the whole time travel device scenario and we’d have a solid 15-minute short on our hands.

  3. I think the actor playing our hero is one of those Parkour & Free Running dudes the French started. I thought the device was a transport not a time travel device. In Russia there is no OSHA.

  4. An impressive achievement in how far an artist can go in production with very little budget.
