After several arduous decades of confidential clinical trials and patient research, The Gametes, have compiled all their financial resources and invested it into a new, innovative experience- THE SWEAT TAPES.
A simple 'eureka' moment is where it all began- A realisation that the typical human consumer will respond to specific audio/visual cues with significantly increased adrenaline, dopamine and spum levels, leading to a ravenous hunger to consume goods and services. This phenomena became the foundation of The Gametes’ key strategy. To sweat, be it from emotional or physical stress caused by external factors, strips a subject of their civility and reverts them to a primal state, overcome by a lustful appetite to consume.
The Gametes have taken this key insight, and developed it into 6 individual pieces, covering a wide variety of perspiration-inducing concepts: Being eternally trapped in machinery; Arachnids emerging from unexpected places; A fragile glass skeletal structure; A savage werewolf on the loose.
It’s simple: The Sweat Tapes will improve your life. It will make you a better person. Listen. Sweat. Consume.
