Tunnel (ft. Channel Tres)

by Andrew MacGregor

Polo & Pan: “Tunnel (ft. Channel Tres)” - 3 mins 38s

Electric birds, blue-skinned humanoids, and retro-futuristic technology abound in a charming promo for Polo & Pan's 'Tunnel'. As the French electronic duo's assured groove unfolds, compatriots Zite & Leo whisk viewers across the galaxy thanks to a cosmic lift attendant. Think 'Forbidden Planet' meets 'The Grand Budapest Hotel'.

The result is lovingly crafted escapism, with the protagonist's tactile, lever-operated control panel used well throughout. Meanwhile, the sight of people being attacked by a flock of high-voltage birds feels like a sci-fi reboot of 'Birdemic: Shock and Terror'. Of course, unlike James Nguyen's crime against cinema, the humour is both deliberate and on point here.
