Start Time: 7am
The McFLY boys stared as figurines from a scale - model kit that comes to life. For the video,
they had to be painted top to toe in blue paint.
Tom: "In the video, we're little models, like Airfix kits and all the parts of our body
come to life. So our hands will start strumming guitars while they're separate from our body. It's really cool."
Harry: "We were painted blue and there was a blank screen behind us so they could do

Danny: "The paint dried hard and glossy. It took me about seventeen showers just to

Danny: "Me and Tom had to wear hairnets - well, I used the bottom of some
tights! I've never worn tights before."
