Murray from Easy Life and his friend take to their bed for a mammoth lie-in - a bit like John and Yoko's but more private - in Greg Barth's video for the groovesome Sunday.

It's a charming piece which follows up Barth's first Easy Life video for Nightmares, and it would be fair to describe it as very pink and increasingly hairy.

GREG BARTH:

"For Sunday I wanted to subvert the usual tropes of a couple chilling in bed all day, and imagine that although young love has stopped time in their head, in reality, time has marched on drastically.

"Paired with their growing lack of responsibility, the hair growth was an interesting tool to bring into this otherwise classic narrative and allowed us to explore how it would affect their relationship, before literally affecting the whole neighbourhood, as hair starts creeping out of the house itself towards the end.

"We had loads of fun bringing this silly idea to life, and hope it acts as a cautionary tale to young lovers who want to spend too much time snogging: *bring clippers*"
