The Robbie & Gary video: it's basically Brokeback Mountain with no bumming in a tent

SO. Shame, that long-awaited RobbieWilliams/Gary Barlow duet is finally upon us. It's disappointing if you expected some sort of Patience vs. Rule The World vs. Angels vs. Rock DJ mashup. Which I kinda was, I must admit. Ok, let's be clear, it sucks and is miles away from what it should be. So its title suits it well. As for the video, the plot is totally inspired by Brokeback Mountain, you know that movie where Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal were "doin' it" in the tent/on the grass/near sheeps/in their wives' backs etc.
Let's hope the Stuart Price-produced Take That 3.0 material is better. As for Robbie, I've almost already given up.Shame is released on October 4th and is taken from Williams' "career retrospective" (ie. "your latest album flopped, let's release a second greatest hits even though you didn't really have proper "hits" since the first one was released") called In And Out Of Conciousness : Greatest Hits 1990-2010 (1990, really??!) which is out one week later.
