For Kinky Lola it was a life drawing class. Now Sam Bailey's latest Francobollo video gives another English middle-class bastion a daftly surreal makeover.

It's not so much that one of the pregnant members of this NCT-style class for first-time parents-to-be happens to be male. Or even that he's pregnant with the lead singer of the band. But then there's the whole business of the indoor, antenatal skydiving. Looks dangerous and the results are both inevitable - and unexpected.

Bailey has smashed it again for the band of which he's a member. This one, he says, continues on from their video for Good Times. "It charts the movements of Laurent, having won 'An intimate performance from Francobollo' on Swedish television's bingo sensation show BingoLotto." And then we see what it means to have a Francobollo person inside of you, then out of you, then back inside of you...
