Jimmy Brown - 4th Nov 2010

Douglas Hart delivers a real tale of two cities in his promo for Manic Street Preachers' emotive Some Kind Of Nothingness.

With lead singer James Dean Bradfield in his home town of Cardiff and Echo & The Bunnymen vocalist Ian McCulloch in his native Liverpool, Hart empathises and emphasises the lyric with this dual deserted streets splitscreen scenario. And it's all wonderfully British.
