A silly take on the lip-synch music video from Sam Bailey and Amer Chada-Patel

Posted by Rob Alderson,

Now I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking Rob, come on, we are so over lip-synch music videos. They’ve been done to death – why do I need to watch another one?

The duo are clearly well aware of the ubiquitous vernacular in which they are operating and are therefore confident enough to play with the rules, leading to some delightfully unexpected moments. Sam says that the video is about " the post-break-up-sex-rampage that we’ve all been a witness of, an accessory to or actually perpetrated," and be sure to watch right to the end if you’re a fan of pale flesh…
