‘Air Balloon’ Video: Lily Allen Knows a Zebra

Not to get too literal here, but: Why wasn't this filmed in a hot air balloon? The song is about flying away in a hot air balloon. Hot air balloons are not overused music-video tropes; they have nice views; we have to assume that they are not any more expensive than a trip to Cape Town; and the zebra can even fit in one, if you absolutely have to have a zebra in your video. That said, cool zebras.
