Long-Lost, Lily Allen

August 31, 2010

As a blasted some of my favorite Pandora stations at work, Lily Allen came across my computer screen.

In an interview with the NY’s Mag Vulture, the video’s creator Marco Brambilla called it a “video portrait.” “It starts with a very tight shot introducing him that’s kind of a reinvention of a neoclassical painting.
