Robbie Williams 'Party Like A Russian' by Vaughan Arnell

Cat Velez - 3rd Oct 2016

They are back. Robbie Williams returns with a video by his long-time collaborator Vaughan Arnell, and this beguiling, bombastic, very entertaining video for Party Like A Russian delivers exactly what it says on the tin. 

Following exiled oligarch Robbie and his endless swagger around a massive mansion, the singer struts his stuff, surrounded by a carousel of devilish ballerinas and tiara-wearing ballroom dancers. With the song's cheeky sampling from Prokofiev’s Dance of the Knights, Robbie seems to both parody Russia's corrupt state of affairs while simultaneously suggesting we should take some tips from them, and party with abandon.

And Vaughan is still Robbie's perfect foil. Supported by a top-notch crew – including DoP Tat Radcliffe, art director Alison Dominitz and choreographer Ashley Wallen – he orchestrates this ridiculous, eyepopping business to a tee.
