In case you were wondering if the "Brothers of Arcadia" film that Nicola Formichetti created for the new Mugler menswear collection (you know, the one he's going to put on XTube) was anything short of ridiculous, the answer is no. The Cut has an exclusive, not-quite-porn but sort-of-NSFW full-length version of the film, which Formichetti compares to Caligula. (He also says the characters "are like Olympian athletes of sex.") For the most absurd moment, skip to 1:57, when the models go from sweating in black and white to happily embracing each other in a group hug under clouds of psychedelic-colored sand. [The Cut]
