Here’s The Music Video That Inspired Baby Driver

After just a week on release, Baby Driver seems to have motored its way into people’s hearts with its infectious enthusiasm and skillful choreography.

For Edgar Wright, Baby Driver is a long time coming – and not just because it’s his first film after the Ant-Man debacle. As it turns out, Wright has been planning this film for a few years and had the kernel of the idea back in 2003 when he made a music video for Mancunian trip-hop outfit Mint Royale.

Blue Song features Noel Fielding seated in a Ford Granada whilst Nick Frost, Michael Smiley and Julian Barratt rob a bank. Just like Baby Driver, Fielding bops happily along to the song whilst the heist goes down and even has the windscreen wiper gag from the film itself.

Take a look.
