Watch Shane Eagle and Fred Mercury’s Perverse Short Film ‘ Vertigo’

You were never ready for that ending. *gags*

Fred Mercury, the former editor of South Africa's longest running hip-hop print publication, Hype, recently released a short film titled Vertigo. The film, which is approximately seven minutes long, features the rapper Shane Eagle.


Without giving it away, Vertigo portrays a life of hedonism among young people—you know, turning up in the club with bottles, strippers, going home with a stranger, and having all your bad decisions looking you straight in the eye the morning after.

Fred is the protagonist in the film, with Shane playing the supporting role. The movie is satiric with beautiful, dark, twisted humor #noKanye. And the ending is guaranteed to have you laughing your lungs out... in disgust (we won't spoil it for you).

Vertigo is part of Fred's virtual multimedia exhibition called #thinkingoutloud, which is ongoing on this Tumblr page.

Earlier this week, we posted an autobiographical documentary, Keys Open Doors, in which Fred shares his life in hip-hop. The doccie was the intro to #thinkingoutloud.
