For those who didn't know already, electronic artist Alex Ridha better known as Boys Noize has made it to Hollywood. Well, his music did.

On the producer’s fourth studio album Mayday, Boys Noize confronts the life-invasive topics of surveillance and freedom. In collaboration with Oliver Stone, he references these issues in the official video for “Mayday”. It was fittingly premiered by the frequently discussed message board 4Chan’s 404 error page HERE. On top of this, it is one of the two first music videos featuring film from the director in 25 years. In addition to new Boys Noize score compositions, “Mayday” is featured in the movie Snowden and its video contains exclusive footage from the film, which hit theaters last Friday.

Frequent Boys Noize collaborators LIL INTERNET and Sus Boy created the music video for the album title track, which combines Snowden film footage with public global surveillance camera footage, and startling NSA facts. In earlier statements, Boys Noize said this: “The album title Mayday refers, appropriately, to the international distress signal. “Mayday is my warning signal against blind categorization and conformist synchronization...” “A call for individuality and diversity – and a tribute to outsiders."

Watch the video for Mayday below and check out the page on 4chan for yourself. Veterans of the internet will understand the magnitude of this video.
