Chicane’s Come Back by The Lennox Brothers
And now for something completely different... For Chicane's new Paul Young-sampling single Come Back, the Lennox Brothers shot this quite extraordinary promo which saw them visiting several European cities. The video is already a Youtube sensation and the brothers explain all here:
"Just before we received the brief Wayne (one half of the Lennox Brothers) had actually just split up with his long term girlfriend. He thought about making her a video to try and win her back, something simple, but unique.
"One week later the track/brief 'Come Back' by Chicane arrived.. you couldn't make it up, it was just perfect timing. So, after 0.332457 milliseconds of thought we came to the conclusion: "Lets get paid to make this video, pretend its all scripted, and don't tell the label it's really for Wayne's girlfriend!" Luckily the label liked our idea, and off we set around Europe with Wayne in his pants and lots of weird stares from the public.
"The only thing we didnt predict was the weather, it was shot in January and was terrible; snow storms, hail, rain, ice, u name it... we experienced it. And poor Wayne was out each day in just his pants and vest dancing away like crazy without a care in the world. Until his dice with death in the ocean! He nearly caught phneumonia as it was -7 degrees in the water.
"For the final shot we attached a Flip Ultra HD to a rocket and it took about two hours. We finished the video, Wayne gave it to his ex girlfriend, and it worked. They're now happily together and expecting a baby later this year.. mental!!"
