Ben Westbeech 'Something For The Weekend' by George Tsioutsias

David Knight - 1st Sept 2011

Very cool and decidedly sexy showcase for the disco-house stylings of Ben Westbeech's Something For The Weekend, directed by George Tsioutsias. Ben starts out on his last legs but gets an unforgettable pick-me-up, courtesy of two equally gorgeous females - and never leaves his bed.

Ben starts out on his last legs but gets an unforgettable pick-me-up, courtesy of two equally gorgeous females - and never leaves his bed. "It was fun to shoot," says George. "My main concern was that I didn't want this look forced and wanted to make sure that the girls are exactly right for this. They had to look beautiful and sexy in a casual, non-contrived way and bring the best out of Ben without overpowering his presence in the video. "Part of the challenge was to get our love triangle to feel relaxed with each other, given that they all met for the first time on the day of the shoot. And the best way to achieve that was simply by knocking back a couple of pints. Even though this is not the most orthodox way of working, it definitely helped the performances look more authentic, especially when it comes to the final party scene under the sheets, where Ben sprays the girls with champagne. "Doing this for Strictly was pure pleasure as it was one of my favourite labels when I was growing up and first started buying records."
