The Rolling Stones 'Scarlet' by Us
Paul Mescal makes an emotional call to his girlfriend at the beginning of the video for The Rolling Stones' Scarlet, directed by Chris Barrett and Luke Taylor - aka Us. So far, so Normal People. But then we notice that Mescal is living in the lap of luxury. In fact he has the run of Claridge's Hotel, no less.
After leaving a half-drunken love note to his girlfriend, Mescal (the sensitive Connell in TV hit Normal People) spins this previously unreleased track from The Stones' early '70s album Goat's Head Soup, proceeds to drink his body weight in whiskey, dance cheesily in the mirror, have an emotional breakdown and trash the hotel room. And then he heads down to the hotel lobby - which is even grander than the one in that other famous deserted hotel video, Weapon Of Choice.
The video was made under social distancing guidelines, and clearly it could not have happened at any other time - and probably for no other band in the world. It's certainly a treat for the growing legion of the Mescal fans - and for fans of Barrett and Taylor too.
