PREMIERE: TOPS Video For "Driverless Passenger" Depicts an Apocalypse in Paint

Journey to the far-reaches of the galaxy via Montreal.
2.4.15

I'm not sure what I'm going to do if the world ends. I expect I will switch my phone off (my mum will keep trying to call me otherwise), make a trough of macaroni cheese, and then try and watch as many episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm as I can before the walls start melting.

TOPS, if their new video is anything to go by, have slightly different plans. Set to the drifting melody of their latest single "Driverless Passenger", the animated film sees the band escaping certain doom in a hatchback - navigating their way through a trippy galactic landscape while the Earth burns below. The video, directed by Jason Harvey, has a hi-res South Park vibe to it, conjuring the streches of the universe through block colours.
