Evergreen Rick Astley returns with a stripped-back performance video directed by Vaughan Arnell - but it's not quite just the man and his mic.

Arnell adds a supporting cast of Rick-alikes to add brilliant variety to the delivery of Beautiful Life. In fact, these fellow performers come in all different shapes, sizes, ages, sexes and colours - wonderfully cast by the director. But they all add to Astley's own energy and pizzazz, pushing the feelgood factor off the scale.

A definite mood enhancer to suit the seize-the-day sentiments of the song.
