Ever been in a pub and all of a sudden the atmosphere changes and you know shit’s about to go down? Well this is the type of sinister feeling that our faves Do Nothing are channelling in their brand new vid for recent post-punk knee-slapper ‘LeBron James’.
“We always like our videos to feature people or places local to us so they have a weird familiarity (for those that know),” frontman Chris Bailey says of the vid. “We filmed the last one at the bar Nottingham we all drink at, this time we hired out an old social club near where we all live and cast a load of friends and their parents to play these funny sinister roles.”
Talking to us for our November 2019 issue, Chris continues about the inspiration behind the track, “Did you watch that documentary about Fyre Festival? So, [Billy McFarland] scams everybody and fucks up the whole Fyre Festival and it all goes wrong. Afterwards he’s out on bail and then immediately starts scamming more people in like really obvious ways while he’s so under the microscope! It’s so dumb to me! He starts emailing the people who bought tickets and offers them things that aren’t real, and one of them is dinner with LeBron James which is so funny to me. It’s about those kinda fucks who do those things to people. Hustlers and conmen.”
