Reminds me a bit of the video for Ribs Of A Broken Umbrella, directed by the same guy.

Me no likies ... I think the directors style suits his photography, but not for a film.

It feels more like an Art Installation than a music video ... Its not something I would revisit for a viewing , or if it popped up on a tv show :cry:

I hated it too and immediately forgot about it until now.

From a technical point of view I think the video's pretty cool. Maybe it doesn't quite fit the song though?

The song itself is one of the catchiest things they've done in ages. Great bassline. Go Dom.

Yeah, I don't think it sits well with the song.

Agreed its technically impressive, but ...

Like the video but think this song has so much to offer video wise that somehow it is a bit of a shame to reuse a similar style. but again, if they like it, that's good with me. they can do whatever. my Kildare kings. yes, i'm madly in love with them again today. like in the good old times. and still missing Crosby so much. some things will never change. :)

Would agree ... I see someone has thrown together a montage video. That is similar to what I'd have done ... The lads in front of a Green Screen with these events going on behind him. Open for a some good natured humour.

Saw the lads on Tuesday ... only noticed that there is no guitar in this song. Dave is playing bass, Dom is on keyboard/knob twiddling duties.

Seeing the way Dave plays the bass for this reminded me of this clip ... Flithy !
