It was director Bakker’s own initiative to shoot a video for a song by British rock band Fat White Family. A succession of highly surrealist and insinuating images.

The original music video for Touch the Leather by British rock band Fat White Family was striking because in the background a stark naked man was visible. Uninvited, director Daniël Bakker made his own interpretation, set in and around a pool and in apartments with a 1970s look. It is a succession of extremely stylised, insinuating and surrealist images - like of a woman kneeling in front of a bed while someone pushes a glass of milk towards her.
