Directed by Christian Moles, the 1950s vibe video features Planter performing his song while sided by slender models sipping cocktails and his band.

Also involved were city-based Paul Mutagejja, who runs the modelling and events company Events23, along with media service provider Adrian Samarra Productions.

Assistance was also provided by Vintage clothing retailer Ego and by Paul Sinclair and Clive Moles, part of a team of private collectors, musicians and actors.
