Sometimes, fashion advertising offers its own rewards, as in this snappy video for Dsquared's Fall 2012 campaign. It was shot by one of fashion's favorite dynamic duos, Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, and stars a crop of new models, including Benedikt Angerer, Simon Van Meervenne, Liuk Bass, Ralf Javoiss, Daphne Groeneveld, Frida Aasen and Bette Franke. Dan and Dean Caten, the twins who design Dsquared, make a special appearance; and, in addition to the eye candy, there's Shirley Ellis singing The Clapping Song. All of which makes back to school look and sound like lots of fun!
