Watch the video for Leather Jacket Love Song by The Cribs here.The video was directed by Andy Knowles and Gregor Stevenson & Chris Stack. Of the video’s unique footage Andy Knowles said: “The video blends original camcorder footage from 1997 with newly shot footage to show current day Cribs performing with their younger selves. Despite its lo-fi, VHS look, the video uses a sophisticated mix of visual effects, hidden cuts, lookalikes and set decoration to sell the illusion that two generations of Cribs are performing together at the same time. We went to great lengths to to re-create the rehearsal room and gig venue from 1997. Shooting in the bandʼs hometown of Wakefield – the video was filmed at the exact same locations as the 17-year old home movies.”
