Could this also mean that there's an Edgar Wright-directed Beck video on the way?
If you can’t make it to an awards ceremony to pick up your prize, then the courteous thing to do is to send in an acceptance video. And that’s precisely what director extraordinaire Edgar Wright – the brilliant auteur behind the likes of The Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World – did for last night’s VO5 NME Awards 2018.
Wright’s recent movie Baby Driver scooped the prestigious honour of Best Film supported by Zig-Zag at last night’s ceremony, and the filmmaker sent in a very special acceptance clip all the way from sunny LA to the O2 Brixton Academy (also, don’t worry about missing out on the show Edgar – you can watch it in its entirety below!) to express his gratitude.
Not only did Wright substitute the iconic middle finger NME Awards statue for a banana, his acceptance video was also especially notable for an unexpected cameo from the one and only Beck – who provided some, well, very Beck-ian dance moves in the background as Wright made his thank-yous.
Watch Beck’s white-suited dance moves unfold in the above video – and, if it’s V05 NME Awards 2018 acceptance videos that float your boat, then you’ll really love Charli XCX’s Top Gear-themed clip.
