Further details

Stef stays up all night editing a rubbish animated video for their new track Booty Call. Meanwhile, Dru miraculously gets a maintenance cheque from his long-estranged dad.

Ash unplugs the computer to make space for his video game, and the entire music video is lost. To stop Stef's mental breakdown, Dru offers up his father's 'dirty money' to make a new video to be directed by art world icon Falco, whom Zoe used to work for in a pretentious gallery.

They soon realise it may be better to keep hold of creative control especially when they see how the video turns out.

Three videos feature in this episodes: Medium Pimpin, Daddy and Booty Call.
