Have Some Sympathy for the Devil, He Was Bullied at School

Creative 240 Add to collection

Hamlet directing duo AB/CD/CD brought the wedding scene to life for Tim Burgess' music video 'Empathy for the Devil'

Have Some Sympathy for the Devil, He Was Bullied at School

So it turns out the The Devil was bullied at school. Who knew? These antics led to horribly antisocial weddings for example.

Hamlet directing duo AB/CD/CD (Clément Dozier and Camille Dauteuille) direct 'Empathy for The Devil' by ex Charlatan Tim Burgess, from new solo album 'I Love the New Sky'.

The promo shows the shamelessly bad behaved devil who gatecrashes a wedding in spectacular style, but then gives us a glimpse of his bullied childhood and really quite sad existence, pulling on one or two heartstrings in the process. The somewhat angelic looking Tim Burgess appears to serve up a little tea and sympathy at the end.
