They are best known for music videos that include Coffee & TV for Blur, Right Here, Right Now for Fatboy Slim, Pumping on Your Stereo for Supergrass and Imitation of Life for REM. Along they way, they've put Jarvis Cocker on a stairlift, Joan Collins in a bathtub and picked up countless awards. More of their creativity can be seen at their website, www.tongsville.com.
