Childish Gambino, the hip-hop nom de plume of actor/comedian Donald Glover, came to initial fame on a wave of nerd-friendly, girl-crazy rhymes. But the music video for “Bonfire”, the lead single from his upcoming debut album Camp, sees Mr. Gambino paint himself into a much scarier world. We’re not willing to spoil the plot, but the preceding effort takes summer camp and makes it into something truly dark and twisted. A Hollywood-quality acting job by Glover also helps you forget about stuff like this. Consider this the one true, earnest scare of your otherwise bland, candy-filled Halloween. Check it out below.

Photographer Brian Kelley took the months of February and March 2011 to travel South East Asia in association with a group called Visual Traveling. 9 skateboarders from around the world accompanied him; the result was a breathtaking exploration of the unseen and untold stories of Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, and Myanmar. Kelley was captivated not only by the talented athletes he was traveling with, but also the landscapes and individuals he encountered during the 5 week trip.
For its 2nd issue, treats! has enlisted the help of famed English photographer Ben Watts to shoot a an editorial entitled “Breaking Away.” To promote Issue 2, they have a video campaign of three behind-the-scenes videos from Ben’s photoshoot that are simply called, Ben Watt’s Shoots Girls On Bikes. The aptly named trio of videos includes a behind the lens look at the photo shoot, including topless models and bikes supplied by Big Shot Bikes. Not that many would care after watching the videos, but the piece is inspired by Queen’s Fat Bottom Girls.
