So, there we are having a nice cup of coffee and a crescent roll – or ‘croissant’ as they will have it in France – with Mika, who was looking divinely foppish with very large hair, when he snaps open his laptop and says, ‘Do you want to see my new video?’
Now, much as we were hoping for something he’d knocked up for Cam4.com, we were still delighted to see rushes (we have all the right vocabulary!) from his still-in-the-works promo for the new single ‘We Are Golden’ (played twice in a row on Radio 1 today, and that’s a first!).
The new single, out in September, is about being a teenager and so his video director asked what Mr. M got up to as a teen. ‘Mostly jumping around in my underwear in my room,’ says Mika. So that’s what the video is. Including a couple of saucy close-up bulge shots where Mika’s kind of grabbing his pants that we’re sure will be snipped from the final print.
Certainly put a wiggle in our walk and a giggle in our talk…
