Luke Bather - 15th June 2016

Comedian and TV presenter Simon Amstell goes behind the camera to direct Something More, a surreal comedy about post break-up loneliness, with music by and starring James Righton, formerly of Klaxons, now operating as Shock Machine.

In this version of reality, all happy and social people wear multioloured clown make-up. So sad and lonely Righton has to remove his, and walk around London bare-faced. Until he cannot bear his outsider status any longer.

So are the makeup wearers really happy after all? Amstell is well-known for being a connoisseur of misery and gloom, and Something More is a thought-provoking allegory on modern ways. The video debuted on Channel 4's Random Acts but the full version is now online for you to get sad about - but also marvel at the incredible variation in the make-up.
