On Man
'Survive This'
4 August 2022 6 mins 15s

Christopher Fairbank (Bill Raggett in Sherwood) and Tim Bentinck (Cliff Lawton in The Thick of It) star in this black-and-white music video for producer On Man that some viewers, according to the disclaimer, "may find disturbing". Such warnings are rare in this genre, but its justified on this occasion.

The father (Fairbank) has a strange tumour that covers his chest and even pierces his face, while the son (Bentinck) does his best to make life bearable. Yet when dad places a bottle of pills on the table, everything changes.

On Man's haunting Survive This masks their sobs and screams, as well as the words that lead to the point of no return. However, Fairbank and Bentinck's expressive performances speak volumes.

This makes the finale even more gruelling and shocking, as if director Ian Roderick Gray wants to ensure no one leaves his promo unscathed. The overall impression it leaves is well worth it.
