Jimmy Brown - 10th June 2010

Jamie Thraves's last video was Dizzee Rascal's village hall romp for Dirtee Disco. This could hardly be more different: the story of a young man's encounter with a cult - which includes members of Fanfarlo.

This plays to Jamie's strengths in weaving a powerful, involving narrative - and supplying a knockout ending. And in this case, he's actually got two endings because there is an alternate version. And it's quite hard to say which one is more controversial.

(Incidentally the Quicktime of the 'official' video on the Factory website is slow to load, but its in the correct 16:9 ratio. The YouTube versions are wrongly in 4:3).
