Today's profit and consumer society is a society hostile. Especially if you are a zombie. To avoid being lynched, he regularly goes to work, disguises as a man as well as he can and tries to behave discreetly. Not so easy when you decay and bleed at every nook and corner…

In implementing this project, we were confronted with several challenges. First of all, a music video should illustrate the idea of the music and the character of the band. All band members also play important roles in the film plot.
As Adams Apple impersons the "zombie next door" it was also important to have a zombie as protagonist in the center of the action. Here it was necessary to find the right mix of humor, depth and genre. Zombies appear classically just as brain dead carnivores. For us, it was the goal to give them a soul and create sympathy.
They are hunted and treated as lepers by the society. Just because they are, well, a bit different and a bit creepy. A metaphor of contemporary society.
I think instead of degenerating in routine, EVERYONE should finally take off his blinders and go through life with open eyes. Maybe we are not that different, and there's a little zombie in all of us ...
