Slow Club Recruit Mackenzie Crook For New Video

April 16, 2010 by  

Sheffield indie pop duo Slow Club have called in ?The Office? and ?Pirates Of The Caribbean? actor Mackenzie Crook to appear in the video ?Giving Up On Love?.

Rebecca from the band explains:
?Lucy Needs, the director, had the idea for the video, all we needed was the person. Having seen ‘Jerusalem’ on the West End we agreed Mackenzie was perfect. So we sat and wrote a letter, edited out the bits where we were trying to be funny and left it at stage door, along with a copy of the album and our numbers. And he called me back and said he really liked the song and was up for it. Totally in love with him now, he is the best.?

You can watch Mackenzie lip-synching on a heartbroken fairground below:
