Ping is proud to present this visually stunning video from “The Hurricane Spoof”.
While enjoying the pulsating beat of Motorik, director Erik Ferguson realised he ought to gather the Bergen mob; get down and dirty, not to mention semi-nude, to deliver this gritty piece of noir document. I’m telling you, this is almost exactly as it happened in that particular reality.
Sitting in metal, looking at plants
Living in concrete, looking through glass
Putting plants in my mouth
Pointing arm to the south
It’s so easy, it’s so easy
Shaking body laying on the rocks
Receiving sound in the ear
Twisting mouth while making these words
Processing sound that I hear
Oh, I’m gonna keep it easy,
Can you switch the light?
’cause I’m living in it,
tell me when to stop
’cause the sky has turned white
. As the title suggests we’re dealing with epic material here. You see, for Ping, surfing is not a mere recreational activity or a diverter of pastime; it’s a mode of transport. So let’s all join virtual hands and smack the lip together as we traverse unexplored musical and philosophical landscapes. Hang loose!
Out surfing on the microwaves Face to face with an empty space Lay like dust on a grave during earthquake Hand in hand with the unplanned
Dive, dive, dive, dive.. Surf or dive!
Way too small to magnify, put it on the weight it’s about to qualify Measuring the value, there is time to decimate
Surf’s up and the market’s down No. 3 is your number one clown! Too alive call the liquidator When in doubt check the online translator
Donate an organ to electrify, we need a brain Brand new prototype Putting your axe to the max Get ready to decapitate
We need a brain!
