This is old news really – this track has already been number 1 in the UK charts. But I only recently sat down and watched the Rudimental ‘Waiting All Night’ video all the way through and I was genuinely moved.
Rudimental have broken the mould and done something really positive with this video. Rather than the usual music format, there are no boring band shots, dance routines or ladies in a state of undress, in fact there are no shots of the band at all. Instead, it features a documentary about Kurt Yaeger, a BMX rider, who loses his lower leg after a motorbike accident. The video charts his road to recovery from leaving hospital in a wheel chair, to getting his prosthetic leg and ultimately getting back on his bike. It is such a refreshing and unsentimental look at disability and a brilliant use of air time. Have a look – it’s great.
