The Smile
'Friend of a Friend'
16 March 2022 5 mins 25s

The Smile (Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, and Tom Skinner) have played in venues all over the world, from the Albert Hall in Manchester to the Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City. The promo for 'Friend of a Friend' takes them to, er, Newington Green Primary School in London.

It reminds DAVID of when Spinal Tap played 'Jazz Odyssey' at Themeland Amusement Park, though the crowd, for the most part, are way more open-minded here. When push comes to shove, an art-rock assembly beats times tables and collective nouns any day of the school week.

We say for the most part because not every child enjoys intricate melodies and pensive lyrics like: "I can go anywhere that I want/I just got to turn myself inside out and back to front." Some of the priceless reaction shots prove that children are indeed the harshest critics.
