CHAMPION ‘VERSION’!

And cos we're dead nice , we're gonna let you see the whole thing - including Jarvis as Brian May...

Pulp‘s new video for next single ‘BAD COVER VERSION’ is a hilarious pastiche of star-studded charity records – with JARVIS COCKER playing Queen guitarist BRIAN MAY, NME.COM can reveal.

The video shows a host of bad lookalikes singing the track from Queen‘s album ‘We Love Life’ in the same style as the clip for Band Aid’s ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ .

The promo was even filmed at London’s Sarm West, the same studio where Bob Geldof and Midge Ure’s legendary charity track was recorded in 1984.

The bad lookalikes featured include: George Michael, Kurt Cobain, Craig David, Elton John, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Kylie Minogue, Paul McCartney, Missy Elliott and Bono.

Meanwhile, the real Jarvis Cocker reprises his impression of Queen‘s Brian May – which he first did especially for NME’s Christmas New Year double issue two years ago.
