In “Somebody To Die For” by Hurts, director Frank Borin follows Theo Hutchcraft as he performs around Christian imagery in desolate and broken down environments. Theo encounters several characters through his performance, including a bright blue nun, a man giving blessings from a toilet, and a dude in front of a bunch of TVs with things like “Get off the couch!” and “Television with not be revolutionized” written on them. Religious imagery is a long tradition in music videos, and Hurts are no stranger to it, with their video for “Blind” beginning with a priest robbed at gunpoint in a church. Religious imagery can also stir controversy when used in music videos, and Hurts are no strangers to that either, as many of their videos feature a parental advisory warning before them. 

“Somebody to Die For” can be found on the Hurts album Exile, and the video was produced by London Ally Entertainment
