When most people get drunk, they tend to lose their wallets, eat gyros too fast, and make inappropriate, regretful phone calls. If the video for The Script's "Nothing" is to be believed, a night of drinking for them involves jumping in rivers and hooking up with mermaids. Yep, the Irish have more fun than we do.
The video, shot in the Camden area of London, depicts an everyday night at the bar with friends until singer Danny O'Donoghue, heartbroken over a lost ex, jumps on top of Camden Lock and dives into Regent's Canal. Spotting his aquatic soulmate in the water, kissing and a near-death experience ensues. That's love, man.
When the band performed an acoustic version of the song at Buzzworthy HQ last month, O'Donoghue laughingly dedicated it to his "drinking problem." Speaking to MTV UK about the video recently, O'Donoghue said that the group "wanted to show a typical The Script night out…not that we all get drunk all the time, but it seemed to fit the song perfectly." If this is their typical night, we need to do a "Night Out With..." piece ASAP.
"Nothing" is the second single off The Script's recently released sophomore album Science & Faith.
