David Knight - 19th Oct 2017

Stevie Russell's gets back to together with Kodaline - this is his sixth video for the band – and once again he provides us with a hero we can all root for.

He's a zookeeper with a problem - he'll only talk to animals, not humans. Can the new girl at the zoo bring him out of his shell? Not if his arrogant love rival from the lion's enclosure has anything to do with it.

Shot at the FOTA Island Wildlife Park in Cork, Ireland, this enjoyable romantic comedy shines a light on the misery of extreme shyness.
