BPA Toe Jam video

Brighton Port Authority is Norman Cook’s latest venture, which launches with the infectious single, Toe Jam, featuring vocals from David Byrne and Dizzee Rascal

Keith Schofield has directed this cheeky video for the song, which is set in a 70s-style swingers party. As the track kicks in, the guests get naked, but thick black censorship lines immediately appear on screen, protecting everyone’s modesty.

Schofield then puts these to amusing use, with the partygoers performing various physical tricks in order to allow the lines to spell out the name of the song, create a smiley face, and even have a game of Pong. In keeping with tradition, Norman Cook also makes a brief appearance, sans clothing.

Infographic of the Week

Quick – call the fashion police! It’s a crack down! Apparently it’s not a hoax but police in Flint, Michigan are attempting to enforce a seemingly crazy ruling, based on indecent exposure law, whereby sagging trousers could result in a stern warning, a fine, or even a prison sentence, depending on just how much buttock is on show. This helpful infographic appeared in the Detroit Free Press so that readers could be fully aware of the legality of their, er, position.
