The man behind the electronics for Yuksek is Pierre-Alexandre Busson, but this clip never gives us a glimpse of the Great Oz (unless those are his hands). Instead we get a playful mix of mirror image gags that keeps upping the ante, even creating a reasonable lip-synching face out of unexpected props. We've seen this reflection gag before in a classic Escape Club clip for 'Wild Wild West' but it also made me think of a certain super celebrity's leg at the recent Oscars. The visual puns are fun and the way director Romain Segaud keeps building the rhythm of the video with such a simple palette of imagery is masterful. --> watch "Off the Wall"
