Storyline

"Lift" is a song by the English rock band Radiohead. It was first performed in 1996; bootleg recordings were widely circulated, and it became a fan favorite. On 12 September 2017, Radiohead released a music video for "Lift" directed by Oscar Hudson, featuring Yorke taking an unusual journey in a lift. The video features cameo appearances from Yorke's girlfriend and his daughter, and references older Radiohead videos, with appearances from characters from the "Paranoid Android" and "Karma Police" videos. Pitchfork named the "Lift" video the 14th best music video of 2017. Written by Peter-Patrick76 (peter-patrick@mail.com)
