When I made my ‘bucket list’ at the start of my 40th year, I never would have guessed that my two top goals, learning to surf and being a zombie, would cross over in such a bizarre and appropriate way. Check out this weird yet strangely relaxing music video from Air’s Nicolas Godin. The video features zombie surfers, played by South African pros Michael February, Simone Robb and Matthew Moir.

Set to Nicolas Godin‘s new solo recording “Widerstehe doch der Sünde” or Stay Away from Sin, Godin is one of the duo that makes up the French retro-futurist Air.

Featured on NOWNESS, this cinematic and darkly playful video finds three happy-go-lucky undead enjoying a day spent carving 30-foot waves, partying on the beach, and paddling among the sharks – which might provide a clue as to how they ended up in surfer heaven in the first place.
