JDB awkwardly filmed walking around Berlin

Only just seen this. Erm, what is it and why?

Is this the most awkward footage of anyone promoting their solo album ever?
You can tell he's thinking "Ah, if I had the others with me at least Nicky's sunglasses and jackets would be getting the attention instead!"

Haha. I've seen the first 30 seconds of this. The whole thing's just him walking around right? Nobody rugby-tackles him at the end or anything?

What are those feet/crotch shots about? I mean, not that I'm likely to complain about close-ups of James' crotch, but why? And what is he hiding in his hand? Bizarre, just, bizarre.

He's not even walking about in the interesting parts of the city. It looks like a call centre. Inexplicable European promo video for...what?

He needs to pick up a load of followers a la Fat Les's Vindaloo and Peter Kay's godawful cover of ...Amarillo, and adopt more of a grin and a strut. Otherwise it's the most uninteresting promo video in existence

Someone told me the bridge was up here… is there a bridge? No, there's not a bridge here.

Can someone walk me to the bridge?

Oh, you don't know either… what's that? Oh a lift? Oh ok, I guess that will have to do.

My idea that this was for a tv thing where they cut little bits together as the intro, but then put the whole song over the top. Poor Jamesy looks very self conscious.
