Jack Ü f/ Justin Bieber "Where Are U Now" (Brewer, dir.)

Think The Biebs had it bad at his Comedy Central roast? Well, the dude gets literally smeared in this new video for Skrillex and Diplo's collaborative project, Jack U ‚ but don't worry: This will likely go further in putting the pop star over in the cool column than any roast. Fans were invited here to a gallery exhibition of nothing by Justin Bieber portraits, where they were given the green light to desecrate and augment them as they saw fit. The end results wound up in this video, which is possibly the best work of art involving Justin Bieber to date.

Jack U: “We are being overwhelmed, in a good way, by the success of “Where Are Ü Now” with Justin Bieber, so with the video we wanted to just take it back to the beginning of the record & essentially create an ode to our fans. Doing what we do, it’s entirely all about the fans. We walk a fine line by being “famous” and in the public eye but we are only here because of you, the fans. Justin wrote this record during a tough time in his life and it comes to us that sometimes, as artists, we are also just objects and we have to take that as much as we have to use that to create. We all do this for you, respect that you put us here and it’s Ü that made the video.” [via YouTube]

Bret Easton Ellis Writes and Brewer directs Dum Dum Girls "Are You Okay"

Author Bret Easton Ellis seems to have caught the music video bug, but instead of just narrating the action, he's now writing it.

Dum Dum Girls "Are You OK" is more short story and art film, than traditional music video, dispensing narrative for something that starts intriguing and ratchets up the tension to full-on disturbing.

Stick with the 11 minutes runtime — which I know is an eon for an online music video — since otherwise you'll miss out on the slow dance with the straight razor.

Passion Pit "Carried Away" (Brewer, Dir.)

Passion Pit - Carried Away

If you're gonna have subtitles in a music video you might as well have fun with them. And directing team Brewer certainly does that but only after sucking you into a dysfunctional and surreal, yet strangely real love/hate relationship between Michael Angelakos and actress Sophia Bush.
