When The Script names a song ‘Man On A Wire’, one might make all sort of assumptions about what the official video might entail. But the truth is right there in the title. It’s the band’s lead singer Danny O’Donoghue (the man in this instance) teetering precariously on a wire high above the streets of Cape Town in South Africa.
The clip begins with a close-up of Danny’s face, before the camera pulls out to reveal his hair-raising position high on the two-inch wire. Drummer Glen is perched on the very corner of a rooftop many stories up. Guitarist Mark, meantime, is thumbing his nose up at the very laws of gravity.
