Fat Dog - I am the King (Official Video)

Some of the greatest things in life have happened in a Weatherspoons toilet. And it just so happens to be the birth place of Fat Dog's latest single I am the king. "It was written in the toilets of the Wetherspoons pub in Forest Hill," says frontman Joe Love, thereby ensuring the pub will one day get a blue plaque. “It was after I got broken up with.” From such a dark place has come a soaring orchestral synth masterpiece that's soaked in emotional toil showcasing a further side to the band. But it wouldn't be Fat Dog without some avant-garde thrown in for good measure. From the lyrics "if you think I'm crying for you, I ain't crying for you, I just watched Karate Kid 2", to the no expense spared video that sees frontman Joe parachute out of a helicopter to the amazement of his bandmates mourning his grave, it really does have it all. Check out the Dylan Coates and Travis Barton directed clip below.
