Dune Rats have whacked us with their new music video for current radio floater ‘Demolition Derby’ and let’s just say they’ve outdone themselves.
The DIY self-produced clip is somehow even more cooked than we’re used to, set in an alternate-reality hospital where the Dune platoon are recovering after a near-death ‘6 pack’ beer explosion but life is not as we know it.
Packing some pronounced Foo Fighters-on-crack vibes, the warped video features plenty of Dunies-in-drag action including scenes of singer Danny Beusa channelling Blink-182’s Enema Of The State hot nurse that will undoubtedly leave many fans sporting the weirdest boner of their lives.
There’s also a Dune Rat birth that sees one of the lads portraying a lunatic doctor swinging a newborn effigy around by the umbilical cord like some kind of crazed rodeo clown.
But enough with the spoilers.
Here’s how it all came together, according to a press statement from Dune HQ:
“Faced with zero budget and a very tight timeline, and armed only with a loose storyline and long-time content cohort, Cornflap (of Dunies TV fame), Dune Rats jumped on a call, bashed out the plot, then jumped on a plane to the secret hospital location somewhere in the depths of Sydney to direct, produce and act in the brand new vid for fifth single ‘Demolition Derby’.
“Taking influences from Foo Fighters, Blink 182 and Tom Green’s Freddy Got Fingered and with a nefarious nod to some hazy memories of TV medical soaps such as ER and Grey’s Anatomy, Dune Rats take The Kids Will Know It’s Bullshit’s fifth video chapter to new highs and lows, and literally treat themselves, for better or worse.”
Watch it below (if you dare) and you can also catch the Dunies on their sold-out national tour, which kicks off later this month.
