The Plan B video for ‘Love Goes Down’ has now been delivered. You can peep it here.
It’s already blowing up on the tinternets: it was the number one most viewed music video on YouthTube today - and as a result got mad homepage love.
We always try and pepper the Plan B videos with good cameos for the children.
On the right is Andy Crane. Yep. Andy mother fucking Crane. The last time you saw him on TV was probably back in 1995 while you were still in your first year of university. You’d get out of bed at 4.30pm, bill up a zoot, start brewing a Pot Noddle and then watch him presenting ‘Bad Influence’ on CITV, before battering your SNES until five in the morning.
In the middle is Paul Young. The last time you saw him was probably back in 1983 when he was smashing up the charts with white soul bangers like this.
Here’s a picture of Ben Drew, Amy and Terry.
Daniel Wolfe found Terry in Croydon last year while he was street casting for another video. Terry is a straight up gangsta. He’s also one of Daniel’s regular troupe. Amy’s his sister.
Pictured on the right is Daniel about to get his sip on. In the middle is the wonderful actress Vicky McClure, who plays Strickland’s girlfriend in the videos and is also currently starring in the TV series ‘This is England ‘86’.
On the left is Martin Serene. Actor. AD. Raconteur. Instrument of story telling. If you’ve ever spent five minutes with him then you’ll have definitely heard a lot of fucking wild things. When he lived in LA he was the 1st AD on the video for ‘Straight Outta Compton’ by NWA, until the shoot got shut down and he got arrested; he was Sean Penn’s PA for a while; he played the character of Wild Bill in Se7en; he saw Hendrix perform at the Isle of Wight Festival. And on. He has the role of Strickland’s manager in the videos and is wicked.
This guy was cast to play one of TV camera operators.
Apparently he was so neurotic about being late for the shoot that he took the train to Maidstone the night before and slept rough in the station so that he wouldn’t miss his call time. A true professional.
You can see full credits for the video here.
Finally, last Saturday saw an important anniversary slip past: it’s been six years since the death of Old Dirty Bastard. To commemorate the event take a minute to watch this and remind yourselves of one of his greatest moments of hi-jinx.
‘I went and bought me a outfit today that costed a lot of money today’.
