This Hungarian Producer’s New Video Is Just Women Stumbling In High Heels

Hard to watch, harder to look away.

September 11, 2015

In what's got to be one of the more perfect music video concepts we've seen recently, director Viktor Horváth syncs the lurching electronics of relatively unknown Budapest producer Yvein Monq with high-res footage of European women stumbling in tall shoes. Each shot of an almost-broken ankle is harder to watch than the last, but something about the way "TWUN" squeaks and scuffles in the background just works with the visuals; it's hypnotic. Just as a flat-sounding drum rattle swells into a brilliant, rubbery synth breakdown—a woman in denim and stilettos trips and rolls down a scenic footbridge. It's actually more cathartic than it is funny, like, at least she's off her feet.
