It’s definitely more of a short film than a music video –
that would be “Little Girl,” as directed by Vincent Haycock. Below is the
detailed description as provided by
the filmmaker.

 

 

 

 

        Directed by Vincent
Haycock, “Little Girl” follows the story of a young female runaway
who steals her dad’s money and motorcycle to escape the god-forsaken, post
soviet demise small town in which she lives. Shot on location in
Eisenhüttenstadt (Iron City), in the Oder-Spree district of Brandenburg, Germany at the border of Poland and Germany. The eponymous ‘Little
Girl’ of the song’s title is played by Chesca Miles, one of the UK’s top female
stunt riders.

        
“Little Girl” also featurs some of Germany’s best stunt riders
including Julian Pohl and the Eastside Xtremes. The latter are a hood rat,
street bike gang that hail from the borders of Germany
and Poland.
They arrived on set in their tour bus, which is tricked out with UV lighting
and a stripper pole. They’re basically buzzing on fades, Red Bull, and
burnouts.

        
The remaining characters were street cast in various dive and biker bars around
Berlin and
the outlining towns. In fact the Canadian Porn Star Cannibal, Luka Rocco
Magnotta, was eventually arrested in one such dive bar hang out, he was
unknowingly scouted for the video.

        
During the course of the three day shoot there were only 2 crashes, a wrecked
bike, a near-death tank rattle, 12 burnt-out tires, a broken whipped cream
charger, and a near arrest after police caught producers filming a high speed
tracking shot on the autobahn into Berlin
at 4am.
