Bastille Band Member Stars In Bizarre Short Film With A Rihanna Poster: Watch

Now this is different. Bastille band member William Farquarson makes his acting debut  (I assume) in a bizarre short film starring a Rihanna poster. Called La Ri En Rose, the weirdest slice of cinema you’ll see in 2014 finds the handsome musician lying in bed.

He holds a white rose, rubs it on his beard and eventually starts to cry. That’s when we realize he’s looking at a poster for RiRi’s Loud album. I’m sure Chris Brown has the same reaction. The “Pompeii” hitmakers tweeted a link to the film (see it after the jump) with the hashtag #BetterThanBattleships. Rude or accurate?

Does Mr. Farquarson have a dazzling future in movies? Let us know in the comments below.
