Forget Elton John and Robert Downey Jr! Lembit Opik mimes along to London indie band’s new single!

Do you remember I Want Love, the 2001 single by Elton John? The song’s video famously featured Robert Downy Jr miming the lyrics in the singer songwriter’s place. Who needs to star in their own music videos when you’re Elton John anyway?

Fast forward to 2012, and former MP Lembit Opik has taken up the position of music video lip-syncer-in-chief for London band, Good Suns. The result is surprisingly watchable, although I doubt the same would be said if the song featured were anything other than distractingly good.

For fans of ex-politicians going viral and Johnny Marr inspired washy indie rock only!
