The director of Louis Tomlinson’s “Richard’s Bucket List” video has released the directors cut.
Director Kent Hugo uploaded the video to his Vimeo channel back in April, but it has just recently been discovered Louis’s hugely supportive and dedicated fanbase.
The video tells the story of Richard, a man in his 80’s who Louis’s is helping to complete his bucket list.
Richard is from Yorkshire. His wife passed away, December 2016, as Louis reveals around the same time as his own mum, who the song was inspired by. Both Louis and Richard have chemistry and affection for each other and it’s a joy to watch Louis help Richard with his bucket list.
You get faced with that almost survival human emotion of you know, am I going to sit down and feel sorry for myself every day, or am I going to be positive about it? You think about the person you’ve lost and what they would prefer, and the answer is then obvious. – Louis Tomlinson, the Two of Us Directors Cut
Louis helps Richard to tick off numerous things, including pilot a helicopter, drive a race car, ride on a roller coaster, get a tattoo ( sort of didn’t happen, he ended up giving Louis one instead) and finally sing on stage to a sold-out arena.
The video also raises awareness for three charities:
Alzheimer’s Society-, which provides information and support, funds research and helps to create lasting change for people affected by dementia.
Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice- a local charity based in Yorkshire that cares for children and young people with terminal and life-limiting illnesses, they help to create special memories for families. Louis has been a supporter of this charity for many years.
Cancer Research UK– pioneers life-saving research to help there become a day when all cancers are cured.
What’s cool about Kent uploading the video and Louis’s fanbase only just coming across it is we are reminded how emotional and touching the original video was. We also like that Kent listed everyone involved in the shoot in the video’s bio.
