Lassamie Prasimay - 28th May 2019

What initially appears to be a flowering relationship gets turned on its head, as Rafe brings down the fourth wall in the new Oli Fox video.

When the film crew intervene, revealing that Oli Fox and his girlfriend's romantic dinner is, in fact, a staged film shoot, the truth is revealed. And as the shoot continues, Oli's situation goes from awkward to unbearable. He begins to question his real, non-faked relationship with his co-star, and the ludicrous interventions of the director. And Rafe makes sure that we're with him all the way.

RAFE:

"The idea behind Oli Fox's Young video was to have a comedic love story with a "she loves me - she loves me not" theme. On the set of a trashy romantic sitcom, Oli plays an actor whose on-screen relationship with his co-star is a charming love affair. But behind-the-scenes, the off-screen relationship is far from rosy. Alongside this unusual romance is a performance against a vibrant backdrop, which starts to unravel - along with the sitcom - in a surreal twist towards the end."
