David Knight - 23rd Nov 2012

It's fun and games down at the legendary Kursaal arcade in Southend, with La Shark and their mates for the video for A Weapon - orchestrated by Jonny Kight who describes the key elements to his idea was "Southend, games, girls and milk." Needless to say, when you put those together, it gets a bit messy...

"The idea was to have a bit of fun here and not take things too seriously, but create a strong and stylised look," says Jonny. "I wanted to get it looking like two of my favourite films - Paris, Texas and My Own Private Idaho. We ran riot at the Kursaal and made a lot of mess! There wasn't much budget on this one so am super thankful for everyone worked on it."
