Rather than suffer through a hellish shoot themselves, M83 recently partnered with Genero.tv to hold a video contest for “Steve McQueen”, the band’s spiraling single off last year’s Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming. After countless entries, French directors Balthazar Auxietre & Sylvain Derosne emerged as the winner.

Following Anthony Gonzalez and company’s sole edict that the song’s “not about the actor,” Auzietre and Derosne crafted a fantastical clip about a dapper young boy’s obsession with science and the natural world as he, somehow assisted by a menagerie of stop-motion animals, builds and tests the world’s first combination fireworks launcher/rainmaker. Watch it below.
