Fight the Future by GYØ Ben, Tøm, Tiny Clanger

INSTRUCTIONS: Destroy a clock. Document.

In essence, GYØ hates clocks.

Well, that's what we want you to think, anyway.

This is "Project: Killing Time".

For once, you have GYØ Ben, your trusty right-hand-man, writing up the praxis, going on the flip-side.

I trust you enjoy our short presentation, and our long(ish) video, but we decided not just to smashy-smash one clock, not two, 'nor five - but nine whole clocks.

Video numero uno shows us purchasing the clocks from our nearest Argos Extra - the bemused cashiers looked more than weirded out.

The follow up is the meat on the bones - the destruction!

We know we can't live up to Charlie Fish's awesome completion - but we gave it our best shot.

Our destructions included conkers, which non-Britons may not be familiar with.

One of the more pyrotechnic approaches. We failed. Miserably.

You should totally re-shoot film one but holding placards saying 'MYSTERY SHOPPER'
That would really freak'em out.

heh heh heh

p.s. Did you try soaking your clocks in vinegar over night and coating them in varnish? My Dad says it never fails.

I think "It's a long story" should be GYZero's slogan.

We say it far too many times to be worth it.

It's a long story

Not the first time Ben has said "that landed in my hair"

Wow. I thought my completion was cool. But I only destroyed one clock, once, in only one particular manner. You guys totally schooled me.

I love the drowning, the axing, and the vehicular clockslaughter. And, of course, the use of "Clocks" and "Sleep the Clock Around."

Great way to kick off Insatiability!

You made me stand in line in some boring store for a full 12 minutes. +1

That one, going to shreds under the car tire, was worth it.
Still, those were alarm clocks, why on Earth you didn´t destroy them while beeping/ringing/tinkling?!
Vote for the laughter.

The alarms?

Wow. So awesome. I could watch you guys destroy every one playing Conkers. That was good stuff. And yeah, the car was pretty good.
