NewType of Unreal

Most music videos amount to little or nothing more than the bands showboating and simply playing their songs.
Too bad more music videos don’t or can’t do like Eisley did with their video for Wasn’t Prepared. Or as Russian band Unreal did for their song NEW TYPE ... make what is essentially a short film to illustrate the lyrics.
Referencing the fictional "Gundam" universe, the NewType vid has beautiful visuals accompanied by beautiful vocals.
All very Russian military industrial complex, with Nietzschean “ubermensch” elements.
Although I don’t care about Gundam, I would not mind seeing more in the style of this story.
