Gallagher Chose Talented Dancer Ifans For Oasis Video

LIAM GALLAGHER was determined to enlist the talents of RHYS IFANS for the promo video of OASIS track THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING IDLE - because the Welsh actor's dancing had always impressed him.

Singer Gallagher persuaded his guitarist brother NOEL to let NOTTING HILL star Ifans play a comedy undertaker in the black and white, 1960s themed video.

He says, "I asked Rhys to do it, Noel was going to ask some other f**king idiot. I said, 'Nah man, Rhys is one of the boys, you know what I mean?' He's quite a dancer. He's top man.

"The video is basically him, I'm forever in his debt for it.

"I just wanted to do something that complemented the song, the song's a bit weird. So we thought that was the song to dress up like a f**king idiot."
