Jimmy Brown - 19th Nov 2013

Joe Connor casts beauty queens, clowns and pandas in his promo for Sometimes, by Nantwich rockers Blitz Kids.

Connor's lighthearted promo - part performance, part narrative - sees this surreal bunch make their way to the band's gig in separate vehicles - slightly Wacky Races style – filmed in severe weather conditions...

JOE CONNOR: "I can’t begin to describe how surreal it was to be on set with all these characters running about. We also shot this on the night of the St Jude storm, so it was not pretty to be out driving in those cars. But the whole cast and crew just maniacally laughed through it. Legends."
