What a shame

A new Brokeback Mountain-inspired video by part of Take That, Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow. This video dares you not to like it. Still, you'd think with Robbie Williams, it would have been a bit more risqué. The hand on the shoulder made me think of that scene with Glen Close and Robert Sean Leonard from In The Gloaming, wherein she forgives him for being her gay son, and he talks about a mysterious ex who isn't important because he's already died from the disease that kills Sean-Leonard's character (its progress is time-lapsed for the benefit of a theatre-going audience that might not want to see what AIDS actually looks like over the course of several years).

But the video is fun. Being a fan, however, of such visual gems as the video to "Rock DJ," I really was expecting more skin from Robbie Williams.
