Can you lip synch or dance or both at the same time?  Do you want to appear in the video for ‘Belle and Sebastian (Live)’, a track from What To Look For In Summer?

Here’s how:

  1. Find a pal who can film you OR you’ll need to balance your camera or phone against a stable object facing you.
  2. Cue up the new live version (click here) of the song ‘Belle & Sebastian’ on your nearest device.
  3. Look to camera, hit record, get ready to dance & press play!

The band want to create a new video with a variety of lip synching  (singing along) & dancing clips submitted by you to accompany our live recording of ‘Belle & Sebastian’.  Have fun!  Go outdoors!  Dress up!

We’ll accept entries *  until November 13th.
