the answer to why i hate you

shot in spain
  

    

    

fairweather friend

directed by peter christopherson, and shot at a house once belonging to actress elizabeth taylor, in foxwarren park, in the outskirts of london.
the videos concept was simple: a poolside party in the sunshine, rain that drove their friends indoors, then sunshine to bring them back outside. unfortunately, this video was shot during a typical british summer, meaning that the rain machine used was highly unnecessary. all of the instruments were rented, and the amplifiers were fake, which was a good job since they all took a dunking in the pool.

  

  

average man

directed by john rankin waddell, and shot in an otherwise empty, very cold warehouse in london. filming started at 9.30am, and the band spent most of the day jumping on trampolines, built-in to the floor of the set. footprints kept appearing on the trampolines, and they were constantly re-sprayed to help them blend in to the set. soon on, the fumes emanated the stage; ross claimed he didn't actually need the trampoline
