My Top 100 Favourite Music Videos: #88

#88: "Pure Morning" - Placebo
Release Date: 1998
Director: Nick Gordon
Fun Fact: Despite being one of their most famous songs, Placebo have not played this song since August 2007 - nearly eight years ago! Brian Molko, lead singer, says he hates the song, hence not playing it for a long time.
I'd probably say this is Placebo's most famous video and, in my opinion, their best. It's just visually a great video, with Brian Molko playing a character who is about to commit suicide, or so it seems. But he crosses his fingers, takes a leap of faith and actually starts to walk down the side of the building instead, to the amazement of everyone. It's just a simple video, done to great effect that is iconic as well as really well shot, and definitely worth watching if you've never seen it before.

Here's the video for your enjoyment!
