Behind the Moon 🎥 🌒

Photos and videos from behind the camera.

The moon is out, and now the mystery of Mr. Moon is revealed – The star behind the mask is none other than Madness’ flying saxophonist, Mr. Lee Jay “Kix” Thompson! I was on location for filming and got a collection of behind the scenes photos, videos, and a couple of outtakes.

So without further ado, here’s some BTS from our pub scene in the B&B music video of ‘To the Moon (and Back Again)’!

Ye Olde Mitre Inne
‘Ye Olde Mitre Inne’, the Barnet pub we met at to shoot some scenes together, including the big Kix Mr. Moon reveal at the end of the video.

After filming wrapped we ventured up the road to another pub for more drinks and a game of pool.

All was looking down for B&B Man Matt, but in a surprise twist at the end of the game he quickly potted ball after ball and won! Had nothing to do with Lee having his back turned (honest!!).

Me and Lee at the end of the night.

I can honestly say that it was one of, if not the most memorable nights of my life. Thanks to Chezzer Chesney, the coolest guy around, for getting Lee involved, and thanks to Matt of the Bed & Breakfast Men for inviting me along.
