Ever wondered what the ‘Spooktime’ video looks like?

Well, here it is.

I’m sure you know all about this film, but if you don’t (shame on you), here’s a quick synopsis. ‘Spooktime’ is a fifteen minute short film inspired by characters who appear on the album ‘A Happy Pocket’. It was written and conceived by Scottish director, John McFarlane, along with Paolo Hewitt and Tony Crean. The Trashcans provide a musical backdrop to the film which is crammed full of drugs, violence, sex and murder – just a normal night out in Glasgow then.

The cassette also includes the ‘To Sir, With Love’ video, and some copies came with a 6 question contest to “Win a luxury two night stay in Scotland”. Questions included easy ones like ‘Which songs are featured in “Spooktime”?’ to more difficult ones like ‘What was the number plate of the taxi?’.

Until recently, you could view ‘Spooktime’ online at John McFarlane’s website, but it seems to have been removed. Maybe someone doesn’t want you all to see it.

Spooky eh?
