Dee Edward | Why can't there be love

The video seems to be home made. Framings are rude and unusual 
cut bottom-up to higlight movements. Everything is energic, colorful
positive... in one word  hot. Since the first moment you feel involved

It's quite impressive how just watching the video you can feel part of 
it even if you're not. Weird isn't it? In order to obtain that, advertisers 
studied the best way to shoot every single scene. They know how to 
blow our minds

Energy from huge crowds running towards beating atmospheres. 
Multiethnic guys sharing music, sports and arts all together. Wild 
parties at the top of godforsaken buildings reminding certain flats 
dripping of pure street Art.

Don't you think it seems to be in BERLIN? In that famous SQUAT building
