In the Guardian, Justin Hawkins, of the Darkness, explains his band's video for 'Everybody have a Good Time', from their new album, 'Hot Cakes'.

It was going to be a monkey, but animatronic monkey faces were too terrifying. So we came up with the bear. Unfortunately, the record company said it would be too expensive to have an animatronic one, so it had to be a guy in a bear costume. With a bra on.

In an age of austerity, I suppose, such corners must be cut.
