The second of Natalie Rae's new videos for Leon Bridges has the soul singer visiting a series of ordinary folk in their home, like a silent witness to their daily trials and tribulations. But he also seems to be searching for something.

The song Bet Ain't Worth The Hand is based on Bridges’ experiences of growing up and having trouble standing on solid ground. Regarding the video, Rae has said: “People may think that he’s searching for something physical, but what he’s actually looking for is the last time he felt a human connection to someone.”

The film’s grading by MPC’s Ricky Gausis accentuates this emotional sentiment. “In the beginning shot, Leon elevates into his own mind and encounters all of these different heart-breaking scenarios," Gausis explains. "We wanted something more stylized for this first shot and more natural for the remaining shots, to disconnect the two worlds and to emphasize the transition."
