Boris’s Cross

DSCF5808 DSCF5815 Apart from impromptu musical performances in front of the station and the occasional fashion shoot in the St Chad's Place alley, King's Cross is also a setting for the odd music video.

Seems you can't go wrong with a matted blond wig, a Boris bike and a traffic-scarred backdrop. I can only guess what Boris's lines will be in this video, shot the other day for a band called The Famous Class. Maybe regaling the yoof here with stories of his Bullingdon escapades, or challenging them to a race at the Gray's Inn Road crossing (whatever happened to his plans to shorten times for the green man?)
