Amautalab and Flamboyant Paradise: MTV Nitro Circus

Updated with Credits List and Info from Press Release


Amautalab, who brought you ‘Tokyo Now’ and ‘Fernet 1882’, has teamed up with Flamboyant Paradise to bring you this series of fun promos for MTV Nitro Circus: ‘Mountain’, ‘Snow’, ‘Desert’, ‘Canyon’, and ‘Lake.

Nitro Circus is produced by the creators of ‘Jackass’, and features daring stunts performed by Travis Pastrana. According to the Amautalab, the plasticine material was a perfect match to reflect the resilient nature of stunt performers: ‘even while suffering these kinds of painful blows, he gets up and continues as if nothing had happened.

Beautiful and darkly humorous, they’re the perfect treat for your mid-week slump. They make me want to run out there and buy a dirt bike, helmet and life insurance against everything under the sun (and sea)!

Also check out the rest of their work here, especially the range of their quirky love-projects (under ‘Broadcast Independent’ category). However, be warned, the first three are NSFW.
