All You Ever Wanted

by Syd Briscoe


Rag'n'Bone Man: “All You Ever Wanted” - 3 mins 15s

A model village provides the platform for social commentary in this beautifully designed promo for Rag'n'Bone Man's new track 'All You Ever Wanted'. The artist himself serves as a passenger on a train travelling around the idyllic hamlet in question, observing as layers of artifice are stripped away to reveal the real social ills beneath.

Accordingly, a picnic becomes drinking in the park, hopscotch markings are revealed to be the outline of a body, and wholesome gardening turns into public urination. It's an artistic condemnation of the artificial nature of a 'traditional' British culture that never existed, adroitly executed by director Will Hooper and co.
