Cracking video, love it. Although I do think that, if the whole Covid/lockdown thing continues for a lot longer (as I fear it will), artists are going to have to find different ways of doing videos than whole-screen montages of each person recording their bit at home. It's fine, but it's going to get wearisome eventually! As videos like that go, though, this is a really good one.

This sounds great, apart from there's something about the lyrics and pitch that make them hard to make out.

Does anyone else expect Elvis suddenly to burst out:

"Because I'm baaad
I'm bad
Ya know it
Because I'm baaad
I'm bad
Ya know it "
