Tiga reveals son and rediscovers life with 'Somebody That I Used To Know'
The third episode of 'No Fantasy Required' is odd and genius
Tiga has just released the third episode of his ongoing mini-documentary series, No Fantasy Required.
The pieces are written and directed by Tiga and intend to give fans an inside look into the inventive producer's creative process and life. Produced in the style of a contemporary and deeply meaningful narrative, the actual content is a meta, hyper-aware, spoof commentary on DJ culture and the image of Tiga.
The hilarious and utterly genius episode shows off the Turbo master's studio methods, blindly banging on keyboards before explaining the true motivation behind his work is his 15-year old son.
The said spawn is an exact replica of Tiga, who the producer esteems as his source for music he'd never be able to find himself. Cue the fader, Tiga continues the episode by experiencing full fledged euphoria to Gotye's 'Somebody I Used To Know'. The transformative interlude is complete with a confusing lack of rhythm, inappropriately timed emotions and classic DJ moves.
Watch No Fantasy Required: TRUTH below. We dare you to try and keep a straight face.
