We may be in for six more weeks of winter, but Skrillex is giving us his own take on Groundhog Day with the premiere of “Doompy Poomp,” the new music video directed by Fleur & Manu and produced in conjunction with The Creators Project.

When the award-winning French directing duo set out to create “Doompy Poomp,” they decided to put a twist on the classic "neverending bad day" scenario. Seen here, the repeated events of one man’s struggle to get a bank loan become a Dog Day Afternoon-meets-Groundhog Day-worthy game of “spot the difference” when the characters and situations successively get rearranged.

"It was a really weird song and more of a joke I made a while ago," explains Skrillex of the track off the album, Recess. "Fleur and Manu are some of my favorite directors/artists out there. Period. I have always wanted to work with them. A lot of my fans don’t get this song and a lot of them hate this song as well so I that's why I thought it would be even more cool to do something with Fleur & Manu."
