Artist and filmmaker George Wu makes a rare return to music videos with a delightful video for Domino band New Build's Luminous Freedom, that combines a stately visual look in the style of the Dutch masters - created by Wu collaborating with still life photographer John Short – with an excellent comedic idea.

And it also offers an enjoyable little mental test for the viewer: just combine the image with the subtitle to come up with a famous name. A video that definitely falls into the 'Has this been done before, and if not, why not?' category.
