Ben Stiller stars in new Travis video

The longtime fan guests in clip for 'Closer'

Ben Stiller stars in new Travis video
American actor Ben Stiller is to star in the video for the new Travis single ‘Closer’.

The band have just returned from filming the clip in Los Angeles.

Set in a supermarket, with each band member playing a store employee, singer Fran Healy – clad in a bear suit as the store’s mascot – breaks into song, shoppers and their trolleys engage in a synchronised dance routine.

Drummer Neil Primrose dances across the aisles with a customer, until the store’s manager - played by long-standing Travis fan Stiller - breaks up the fun.

The single is available for download from April 9, with a full release following on April 23. The group’s new album ‘The Boy With No Name’ follows on May 7.
