Thank Me Later

by Syd Briscoe

Anna of the North: “Thank Me Later” - 3 mins 30s

Anna of the North turns traditional pop tropes upside down in this sweet, surreal promo for her latest single. Directed by Harry Barber, the piece sees the aforementioned Anna playing matchmaker for a hapless young couple - supported by her pal in an ice cream cone costume.

While the song's lyrics contribute to this subversion of expectations (Anna plays sugar mama to a potential suitor), the track's bouncy, jazzy tones give the accompanying film a lighthearted, quirky vibe. Alongside singing burgers and toilets playing bouncer, it's a pleasantly weird ride.
