Rob Brandon's video for Fickle Friends takes a familiar premise and makes it fresh and entertaining all over again. 

It's a casting session in which the auditionees fall under the mercy of a fussily idiosyncratic casting director - Rob Brandon himself. Pushing his charges to do all kinds of things for an unspecified production, out of which comes a performance of the bright and breezy Hello Hello, some stripping off and sexy dancing.  

Fun pop video vibes in the vein of Brandon's entertaining videos for George Ezra a couple of years back, whilst revealing the true reason why people want to direct: to get people to do silly things.
