Martin Freeman goes nuts in new Paul Weller video

The Sherlock star takes out his frustrations on a garden shed

Martin Freeman made his name playing everymen who feel trapped in their everyday lives. Still, at least Tim from The Office never brought a chainsaw to Wernham Hogg.


If you’re watching on mute – like everyone on the Internet seems to these days – Freeman hasn’t simply flipped out. He’s starring in a music video for modfather Paul Weller. The tune is called Pick It Up, it’s pretty good, and it will be released as a single on 18th December.

Amanda Abbington, Freeman’s on and offscreen wife, is a fan.


Presumably she’s not worried about the Freeman family shed.
