If there’s one thing we know about Daniel Bedingfield, it’s that he’s an incredibly smart operator. He recently asked his global fandom for financial assistance in creating his latest EP. And got it. Now, he’s revealed the kind of video that’s sure to have him banned from the music channels and taking up column inches in newspapers, on websites and blogs the world over.
He’s obviously done something right, however, because the clip (which has been age restricted on YouTube because of its nudity and splashes of violence) has been racking up the views since going live only a couple of days ago.
So what we’ll do here is show you the little 30 second preview to the clip and if you love it lots, there’s the chance to click through and watch the clip proper.
The imagery, though most definitely NSFW, is incredibly beautiful with Daniel and his female companion completely naked inside a glass box half-filled with murky water. There’s a moment when the surface of the water is on fire and Daniel’s head slowly emerges from the water below into the flame (see screenshot below) which is insanely fabulous.
We can’t remember anything like this before in a video clip. Pushing the boundaries and coming up with something fresh is hella difficult these days, but credit where it’s due, he seems to have achieved it here.
Seriously classy stuff that has us begging the question, “why is this guy not a huge star?”.
