As you can probably remember, in the past we posted video clips from TV shows mentioning or impersonating Arctic Monkeys in some way. You can probably also remember how bad the acting seems to be when they do this.
Here's another one, from last Sunday's 'Where The Heart Is'...
Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders was spotted filming the new video for 'Leaving Before The Lights Come On' by BBC Radio Sheffield and even had time for stop and chat:
He said: "It's all around this road really, we've got a few other bits to do as well. I don't want to give anything away yet. It's quite an interesting one to watch, probably be more understandable when you watch it than me trying to tell you about it."

Apologies for being a bit late with this one, but we've finally managed to get hold of a good quality version of the new official video for 'Fake Tales Of San Francisco'. The video was originally premiered on Channel 4's T-Mobile Transmission program on July 7 but now the band's label Domino have sent us a high quality version for our loyal fans. The live performance in the video is recorded shots from the Magna gig in Rotheram back in April of this year.
Make sure you check out Andy's and Alex literally go head-to-head. What a great moment!
The 2006 nominations for the Nationwide Mercury Music Prize have been announced.

Simon Firth, chair of judges, revealed much praise for all of the above artists and their reflections of contemporary life. He said: "Above all, this year's shortlist for the Nationwide Mercury prize is about the art of the songwriter," he said. "If you want to know what life is like in Britain today, listen to the country's musicians!"
The overall winner will be announced on September 5. Last year's winner of the prize was Anthony & The Johnsons for 'I Am a Bird Now'
