When El Guincho’s Pablo Díaz-Reixa invites us on a journey through the cosmos at the beginning of the delirious video for “Bombay” (from the 2010 release, Pop Negro), one might be led to believe an outer space adventure is in order. What comes next definitely isn’t what Carl Sagan had in mind. If you’re into “trips”, the surrealistic montage that ensues will surely be your kind of milkshake. A NSFW barrage of topless girls, furries, and guns—with a decidedly retro vibe—“Bombay” is an instant classic in the WTF department.
