Noel Gallagher, who ranted about how much he hates making music videos, has unveiled a spoof promo in which he repeats many of the things at which he previously poked fun.

Last year, an expletive-packed compilation of his scathing comments about his Oasis videos became a YouTube sensation.

Now a new film to accompany his next single Ballad Of The Mighty I appears to have parodied many of the elements which upset him most.

His hilarious grumbles were taken from an audio commentary track which featured a DVD release of the band’s hits, with Gallagher cringing as he pointed out that the band has excelled at “walking and playing and standing still … and looking bored”.

The guitarist moaned about walking in slow motion repeatedly, complained about how a director told him to do one scene again with more energy in his eyes and spoke about his hatred of the whole video experience.

“I hate the fact they cost a fortune. I hate the fact you’ve got to be there at eight in the morning. I hate the fact you don’t leave until eight the next morning. I don’t like the fact that the people who’re making them think they’re making Apocalypse Now and everything is the most important – ‘this the really important shot’,” he said, adding that he was tired of doing repeated takes.

For his latest video he is seen walking and playing guitar in slow motion and again looks completely bored.

During his previous rant, he grumbled that the band looked like they were wearing someone else’s clothes, and in his new film he is seen stealing a new jacket from outside a shop.

A self-absorbed director also appears at the beginning, telling him “just keep it super loose, lots of energy in the eyes”.

The video concludes with the director telling him: “Good energy in the eyes, I like the swagger. Just had a bit of a technical back there. Can we just go for another one? Chris Martin did 10 takes.”
