This is an outtake from the video I directed for Old Isleworth by the Ruskins. 
Here we see Elliott Tittensor (of Shameless fame) shoulder barging an old woman as he runs away from his peruser.
There was a lot of pressure to remove this shot as it was thought it was too comedic and resembled a scene from Little Britain. The old lady throws her hands up in the air in some form of homage to Willem Dafoe in the movie "Platoon".
Funnily enough no one thought it should be removed on the basis of it being incredibly brutal and thuggish.
I wish it had stayed in the video, I should have fought my corner as a director but in my naivety I gave in to outside pressures. It will not happen again.
