L.A. garage rocker Hanni El Khatib is prepping the release of his second album, Head in the Dirt, for April 30th. The follow-up to 2011′s Will the Guns Come Out was produced by Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys – y’know that guy with all the Grammys? Here’s the video for first single “Family,” which finds an underwear-clad biker gang livin’ it up, fast and furiously. Watch it with the sound off and it plays like a Benny Hill homage.
Director Nick Walker told Noisey:
I directed the video in the beginning of Jan 2013 up at the Wright Ranch in Malibu. I had written that treatment 3 yrs ago in a notebook with other ideas and concepts. After a few conversations with Hanni about different video ideas… I sent him over some scans from the notebook with a few different ideas. A year after receiving these he asked me if I was still interested in doing the Wild Asian Motorcylce Sex Gang video… And I said of course.Tweet
