Cat Velez - 11th Mar 2016

Francis Wallis's new promo for rapper Nick Brewer's Never Say Never - featuring Sinead Harnett - is the charming tale of a first date that flirts with disaster, but ends in unlikely triumph. And it's all because of lovely Bingo.

In his attempts to woo the girl of his dreams, Nick ends up taking her to a working men’s club, where a Bingo session is underway. Perhaps not the most romantic first date ever, but it all turns out rather well... 

FRANCIS WALLIS:

"Nick made it clear that he wanted this video to feel British and real. I felt we could create something cinematic by setting us within the confines of a working men’s club, with some great characters dotted about!

"In true music video fashion we had to sacrifice a fair amount on the day, but I’m happy with the look and feel we created and the strong performances delivered by Nick and Sinead, who I'm sure will both have a big year ahead!"
