Snow Patrol: 'Called Out In The Dark' video

Usually we can't stand the sight or sound of drab chancers Snow Patrol: their faux-anthemic landfill indie is mostly enough to make us reach for the remote, or the off switch. However, their combat single 'Called Out In The Dark' is actually quite good, a heartfelt foray into electronic pop, and the accompanying video is pretty good fun too.

As you can see below, in it lead singer Gary Lightbody gets replaced by Pirates Of The Caribbean actor Jack Davenport while shooting the video (yes, it's a meta-video – ace), and generally acts the clumsy anti-pop star, while the crew get increasingly exasperated. Don't worry though; it all turns out for the best in the end.
