“Hey guys we need to shoot a video for your song Pretty Thing.”
“Cool – what do you have in mind? Maybe we could do a performance video where we all play our instruments to show what we look like live. Or maybe we could not appear in the video at all and just use actors to tell an interesting or arty story for people to watch?”
“No, I was thinking that we get Katie to sing whilst you guys just stand there looking really really awkward for no reason.”
“Hmmm that doesn’t sound great – can we not at least move around or something? Maybe some dance routines perhaps?"
“OK, you can do a little bit of walking. But that’s it. Mainly I want you just standing doing nothing. It expresses something deep about the pointlessness of life”
“Er…OK…whatever you think will look good.”
Here is the new video for Pretty Thing by Dizzy. An undeniably beautiful song that in places reminds me of the band I’d most like to reform (The Sundays). Just feel a little bit sorry for the guys in the band in this video as you watch. They certainly don't look like they thought this was a good idea. More like they're at a funeral and Katie has just burst into song.
