Villagers' Conor O'Brien goes out for a romantic dinner date, and offers his dinner partner a remarkable token of his affection, in Bob Gallagher's tragi-comic video for Fool.

It's a surreal and grisly tale of unrequited love, told entirely from the perspective of O'Brien's date - it was shot with the camera mounted on the director's head - and featuring a larege cast of fellow restaurant goers, it's expertly choreographed to tell the story in a single continuous shot.
