Wiley makes up for all the times he didn't appear in his other videos, by appearing numerous times in this one for Numbers In Action by Us (Christopher Barrett and Luke Taylor) - a meticulously designed performance piece that deconstructs the music video-making process.

There are estimated to be 34 Wileys in the vid - including Lipsync Wiley and Clapperboard Wiley - and it's a fine addition to Chris and Luke's already impressive reel (which includes a trio of vids for Wiley's stablemate DELS). The unpredictable grime-don and recent Ustream celebrity has described it as "the best video I ever done" (sic). It's certainly the best Wiley video in which Wiley appears.
