“The Trouble With Us” – Chet Faker and Marcus Marr
“The Trouble With Us” by Chet Faker and Marcus Marr is a tightly-choreographed video production that provides a unique take on conventional relationships.
Directed by Barcelona-based Kinopravda, the video follows eight couples as they meet, fall in love, and drift apart – all within the span of four minutes.
Kinopravda’s treatment underscores the monotony of modern dating, with each couple going through identical motions en route to their eventual breakup.
A practical take on the Chemical Brothers’s “Let Forever Be“, “The Trouble With Us” uses clever visuals to hint at the cyclical nature of relationships.
So take heart, troubled couples: bad as things seem, there’s likely seven more unfortunate souls getting laundry tossed at them as we speak.
