WATCH: Ronan Keating acts, runs and cries in new video for Fires

If this isn’t the best thing you see today, we’ll give you your money back.

HE ACTS. HE cries. He runs. He drives a Bentley. He wears Madonna’s gloves.

There is almost nothing that Ronan Keating doesn’t do in his latest solo offering. Except that growly-singing thing of his, he doesn’t do much of that in the ‘NOT-autobiographical’ Fires, his first song after a bout of writers’ block. We feel you, Ro-K.

It is recommended that viewers watch right through to the end to experience the most masterful of the man’s acting exploits.

Welcome back, Ro-K (can we make that name happen?).


A commenter had the following observations after watching the video, and we enjoyed them so much we thought we should share*. Take a bow Chris Dunphy:

- He could do with a dab of Oil of Olay:  Ro-K is starting to age rapidly.
- His bathroom tiles are nice – I wonder where he got them.
- All the stage-school angst and over-emoting in the world won’t make us feel sorry for you – not while you’re nipping around in a Bently that would wipe out a lottery win.
- The video producer seems to have been a little squeamish about including fire to illustrate fires.
- The song is vaguely tolerable in a “was-that-in-the-Eurovision?” kinda way.

*With a slight edit, for taste purposes.
