All credit goes to our friend Aled at IndiePopQueen for introducing us to the tender new video from England’s Will Young, who was the very first winner (2002) of the Idol franchise before it was even known as such. The Chris Sweeney directed clip can only be described as adorable, and I say that in a manly sensitive way, and none other. The relationship between a boy and his dog, as well as the injustices behind the dog show circuit are brought to a final smile/tear inducing moment that you’ll want to repeat. I can only imagine this must have been the easiest video shoot Young has had to endure; friending and bonding with a dog. To say anything more would be to give too much away. Give your eyes the pleasure below. And thanks again to IPQ. This made me smile.
