Back in the early 2000s, one of most popular videos was Coldplay’s “The Scientist.” It featured a story told in reverse with all the scenery moving backwards from end to beginning. Nicolas Heller and Houston Yang’s video for George Watsky‘s “Stupidass” uses the same concept. But while the former was a serious tale, this video starts with a man standing naked in a park. As he reverse strips, the desire to know what happened will grow as fast as his layers of clothing do.
