This first one marries one of the genre's best singles and bands, both saluted in my Britpop doff piece, with one of my favourite Ian McKellen flicks – the 1995 totalitarian adaptation of Shakespeare’s Richard III, which was partly filmed at my uni and at Battersea Power Station near where I later lived. Its scenes of Ian as Richard in proper villain mode were more suitable a video for the punky tune than the standard studio promo I thought.
BONUS EXTRA: This extra one certainly isn’t Britpop but is included here anyway as a similar style mashup, this time the trippy stargate finale of Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey soundtracked by an obscure but decent Pendulum single released seven years after the film’s events were supposed to have taken place. This clip is improved greatly by headphones and some form of intoxicatedness...
