David Guetta and Nicky Romero’s ‘Metropolis’ video is directed by Mr. Brainwash — and it’s awesome
“Art cannot be criticized because every mistake is a creation.” That’s the mantra for the awesome new video for David Guetta and Nicky Romero’s smash hit “Metropolis.” Directed by Mr. Brainwash, a famous street artist whose real name is Thierry Guetta (no relation — we think), the video shows David and Nicky tagging an abandoned warehouse with spraypaint before playing a show for pretty sizable crowd in front of a DJ booth that reads ‘music is my art.’ If you’re a fan of the Brainwash style, the video will be right up your alley, incorporating lots of slow-motion shots of splattering paint cans, things being smashed, and an absurd amount of controlled chaos. It’s definitely one of the more artistic music videos we’ve ever seen, but it works perfectly with the track and is refreshingly different. Check it out for yourselves and let us know what you think in the comments, and pay attention for the MBW cameo at the end in his signature fedora. If you’re into the Brainwash vibes, be sure to check out Exit Through The Gift Shop, a documentary directed by fellow street artist Banksy that reveals much more about the unique artist.
Update: There’s a new behind the scenes video we’ve embedded below.
