David Knight - 12th Mar 2018

Louis Bhose explores the loneliness of the middle-aged PE teacher in his latest video for Bruno Major - the second of a three video collaboration funded by Apple Music - with a heavy dose of bittersweet humour.

You'll probably be rooting for this poor guy who's ignored by his teen pupils and lives on past dodgeball glories. But then he enters his fantasy dreamworld, and you may not like him so much after all.

And just as our hero gives Bruno an unexpected ball-smash, the video is also right on the mark.

LOUIS BHOSE:

"Easily was written about the pursuit of something that feels increasingly unobtainable, and I liked the idea of having a central character with very little energy left - someone whose future didn't really exist for them, who was happier existing almost entirely retrospectively.

"I wanted it to feel as bittersweet as the song does, and I also really really wanted to nail Bruno with a large ball. Hopefully this video does all of those things.

"It's also the second of a three video collaboration between myself, Bruno Major and Apple Music."
