Brother Leo is an astronaut who encounters Cupid on a trip to outer space, in Cass Virdee's dizzily entertaining video for Naked.

Virdee sends Brother Leo - aka Ola Svensson - into the Heavens to meet Cupid, played by dancer Celine Fortenbacher, sitting in a fluffy cloud - who shoots an arrow unerringly through his space suit, but is herself struck by the traveller from Earth.

Through well art directed studio set pieces and a smattering of visual effects, Virdee establishes a frothy '70s influenced performance - an updating of a musical theatre production from a bygone age, with a Hubble Telescope version of outer space as the jawdropping backdrop to the sweet tale of Cupid and the Spaceman.
