The 24 Hours of Le Mans, 1955. 300,000 spectators are watching from the sidelines. It is 6:00 PM when Pierre Levegh’s car ploughs into the spectator stands, scattering the crowd with his car engine’s hot debris. It is a tragedy that will cost more than 80 lives. And yet, the race goes on. At Mercedes, a friend and co-pilot of Pierre Levegh’s is ready to take the relay. His name is John Fitch.
The charismatic LA-born musician Charles X teamed up with our very own in-house director, Quentin Baillieux (one half of the Parallelduo) for his eagerly anticipated new single entitled Can You Do It, this intricately crafted mixed 3D/2D animation music video produced by Eddy and animated at Brunch Studio.
Quentin beautifully merges the typically highbrow sport of horse racing with the commonly misrepresented “mean streets” of Pacoima, the proud birthplace of Charles X, to challenge any stereotypes or preconceptions of race and social class which may exist in modern day society.

Anonimo is transalpine watch brand: a Swiss movement for an Italian production, the brand is spread through both universes.
See their website bellow with many pieces of information about their work: www.anonimo.com
The characteristic of these watches is that they are digged into bronze, they are not made thanks to a mould. So each one of the creations is one robust and magestic item.
In this film, Parallel wanted to stay in the Florentine universe that belongs to the brand and they chose to underline the artistic and inspired aspect of these uniques watches.
