Stars from Hollyoaks, Gladiators and Shameless feature in the video for ‘Caught In The Rain’
Alan Connor's Radar commissioned video for 'Caught in the Rain' has a rather cheeky edge, as Manchester's Tunafish Media get to grips with the world of synchronised swimming. There's a couple of celebrity cameos thrown in the deep end too, as Anthony Quinlan from Hollyoaks and Gladiators and Ryan Lever from Shameless lend a hand in the promo.
Filmed at Salford Fit City gym, the video finds our unorthodox team trying to claim the swimming title in true underdog style, picking up at least one unlikely fan along the way, and at least two celeb cameos.
"We have worked with Anthony before and as usual he was brilliant and threw in some of his own ideas which worked brilliantly. Ryan was great to work with, he was up for pretty much anything we asked him and he brought an extra dimension to the video," said director James McDonald.
Alan says, "I chose Tunafish Media because I felt they came up with a brilliant original concept, and given the Olympics, I felt it would attract some attention to the record."
"They went to a lot of trouble with the video, sourcing the right location and getting appropriate props made. They secured a great cameo from Anthony Quinlan and story boarded it to the finest detail. They knew exactly what they wanted to get and, although it was a long shoot, I couldn't have been happier with the results. They are a great team and I'm very proud of our video. Their standards are very high and that shows on screen."
'Caught In The Rain' comes out on Interscope Digital next week, available for download from August 13th. Mixes from Beltek, DJ Loop, Simon Sinfield, Darryl Nelson and Rikki Rok.
