Maximo Park have some pretty dedicated fans but none bigger than the star of their new video for 'Hips and Lips'.

In the video we see the fan in his natural habitat, a bedroom plastered full of Maximo Park posters and memorabilia, wearing his favourite band t-shirt and listening to the new single from the Sunderland band. Composing his own dance routine to the single it is clear to see how much he loves the band.

In fact, he loves them so much that he has kidnapped lead singer Paul Smith. Something, we think you'll agree, that might just affect the band's comeback gigs later this year.

Don't worry though, the video is all a big stunt as any fans of This Is England will know - recognising actor Thomas Turgoose as the fan in question.

Hips and Lips is taken from Maximo Park's forthcoming album The National Health, released in June. Check out the video below, now.
