The importance of a great video
Although a fantastic song in it's own right, the video to this Oasis hit is way above the typically churned out visual images that accompany many songs today. Rhys Ifans is perfect as the sly, foppish and ever-so-slightly sinister undertaker. Top marks should also be awarded to all those who helped mix Dickensian bleakness with kitchen sink dramas of the 1960's. A first rate video that now seems wasted on a few short minutes of screen time.
Great video - although I'm not too sure I agree that Rhys Ifans plays an undertaker, but rather the deceased at his own funeral - if you watch the video, nobody acknowledges him, he's already dressed when lying in the bed at the start of the video, and in the closing shot, you can't see him at the front of the procession...??? Class act!
