This clip was a creative culmination of the band and the key individuals at silo6 - Wayne Reynolds, Patricia Ward and Tim Krakowiak. The band had mentioned liking the seventies cartoon "The magic ball" - A series about a little boy called Sam who lived in a seaside town. Sam had a magic ball which he carried around with him everywhere. Sam's Aunt owned a curiosity shop full of interesting, odd and truly bizarre items that Sam would stop and look at during his visits. Sam would often go looking through the shop and find interesting items to ponder about. Whilst holding an object, the Magic Ball would activate and take Sam on weird and wonderful adventures. The Ball would always bring him back home safely though always having righted a wrong or sorted out a problem or two.
The song Traders had a similar feel, so we wondered what would happen if we revisited Sam as a grown up who had forgotten about his ball, but found it in an old curiosity shop.
