Ever wanted to dance, sing, draw or mime your way into fame? Well Ed Sheeran may be just the man you want to talk to.
Ed Sheeran dances like he was born to in his ‘Thinking Out Loud’ film clip but this ginger crooner wan’t necessarily blessed with all those moves without a bit of hard work. Like anything worthwhile in life, they took a fair amount of practice – just how much, he shared in a behind the scenes look at the making of the clip. The result is a beautifully shot video of Sheeran sweeping majestically around a ballroom with the supremely talented Brittany Cherry making the whole thing even sexier. It’s as though the entire clip was specifically designed to make your clumsy attempts at any structured dance feel even more ridiculous.
Well now Sheeran has decided that a) he wants to make another film clip; and b) he can’t be bothered paying to have one produced. So that’s where you come in. Yes, Ed Sheeran is giving you the chance to accost people’s eyes with your talents across the globe in a second version of a ‘Thinking Out Loud’clip. Yep, he e’s proven he’s got the moves, so now he’s looking for your help. Sheeran has announced via his website that he’s looking for his fans to donate their time and creativity in exchange for their moment in the spotlight. Hey but maybe dancing isn’t your thing – that’s cool, not everyone can be a Justin Timberlake on the stage – if you’d prefer to sing, draw or even mime the lyrics, that’s okay too.
