Video - Daniel Powter Bad Day



Today I thought I would do something a little different with the blog and share one of my favourite video clips. Released in 2005 Bad Day is Canadian singer/songwriter Daniel Powter's only hit to date, and is based around the simple notion that every one has bad days from time to time and singing about them can make a bad day just that little bit better. The clip itself is very clever, playing out over three days in the lives of a guy and a girl who are both unhappy. The pair bond over a picture in a city railway station--basically the girl scribbles on top of the advertisement expressing her unhappiness, while the guy sees the picture and starts adding to it in an effort to cheer her up. And then, of course, at the end, the inevitable happens ...

Anyway, it's a cute clip and a decent reminder that we all have bad days, that we can all feel alone and sometimes little things can help us feel better.
