Last week, an “arty” black and white video of polite people taking each other’s clothes off got tens of millions of views on the internet. It didn’t go quite as nuts as Tatia Pilieva’s last video—which, you might remember, featured polite strangers kissing each other on the mouth—but we thought it’d be fun to make our own version of it anyway.
So we went out into the streets of London and found a dozen or so strangers who aren’t models of any description to undress each other and lie down on our sweaty mattress.
As I got into the mix in these spots and began shooting, I found myself getting caught up in the nature of the barbershop. I found myself putting down my camera and talking about COINTELPRO, The Pacers vs. The Heat, Bushwick in the 90s, The Bloods and Crips, Why Solange hit Jay-z, and so much more.
Most participants in Pageant have been called here through prayer. They arrive at the Hill Cumorah a mere week before the first performance. Eight hundred Mormons, complete strangers to one another, receive their roles and rehearse for just seven days before opening night.
Hull, A Poem
be sure to pack your toque
or be covered in puke
girls dance under nineteen
and scarf sketchy poutine
smoking 100 darts
and breaking 100 hearts
the strip is never dull
so i’ll see you in hull
Just Remember to Smile.
I don’t think Tupac was a yogi, but doing sun salutations to his voice was strangely befitting.

"Three years ago, I released a video for every single track from Alpocalypse. I’m not gonna say I’m the first person to do that. I’m sure someone did it before me. But what irked me was, when I came out with this eight videos in eight days thing, people were like ‘Oh, you’re pulling a Beyoncé.’ and I have to be like, ‘No, actually Beyoncé was pulling a ‘Weird Al.’"
