The Brooklyn bad-boys of hyphy-punk, the Death Set, refuse to sit still. Today, they're dropping this totally batshit video for "They Come To Get Us," a highlight of last years Can You Seen Straight EP and easily the most playfully anarchic thing you'll see all day unless you live in Pee-Wee's Playhouse or something. After the Back to the Future-inspired intro, director Guillaume Panariello takes our hapless heroes through a retromania apocalypse where the ephemera of our youth — Godzilla, U.S.S. Enterprise, the gang from Rampage — wreaks unbelievable havoc on New York City. You know, just like blind childhood nostalgia has wreaked havoc on the Brooklyn underground. A sly commentary, a visually bold video and a shot of caffeine to your afternoon. Good luck!
