American singer Ben Folds has enlisted the comedy skills of LITTLE BRITAIN star Matt Lucas for his forthcoming video.

Fold's single JESUSLAND, which comes out next month (OCT05) and stars British funnyman Lucas as wig-wearing evangelist REVEREND LUKAS CLEARHART, who is trying to sell miracle water.

Folds, 39, is a huge fan of Lucas and obsessed with his hit BBC comedy Little Britain.

He says, "I think Matt is a genius. I've been watching my little Little Britain DVD every day since he gave it to me. I really need to stop quoting LOU and ANDY because it's driving everyone around here mad."
