Joe Elliott's video for The Family Rain's Feel Better (FRANK) is all about a good night out that goes bad for one girl who is tempted by her friend to try a new drug... 

The video was made in a bit of a rush (suitably enough) but Joe got to use one of his favourite locations - the rather spooky pedestrian tunnel, which runs under the Thames between the Isle of Dogs and Greenwich in south-east London.

Joe Elliott: "We had to shoot it all in a day and had a number of locations across London to make; so we worked fast as time was tight. 

"I stumbled across the tunnel in Greenwich one time back in the summer, whilst out cycling around with my mate in the middle of the night. It goes under the Thames and we always thought it would be a great place to shoot a video, as it is so sterile and cold-feeling, with immense atmosphere. I wanted to set a smoke grenade off down there, (for added haze) but apparently we would have been abused by the anti-terrorism squad.

"Had a great crew and cast who got this all together with only two days of pre-production so huge thanks to them! It was a bit of a blur but good fun all the same."
