Tom Goss’ latest music video is a cover of Dusty Springfield’s iconic song “Son of a Preacher Man”, reimagining the song as being about a gay teen who falls in love with the son of an anti-gay preacher.
The video tracks the teens as they escape together away from the world and enjoy the bliss of young love.
However, when their love is discovered, they face reprimand from their families and their community. One boy even contemplates suicide. However, the pair are ultimately able to break free from the religious community that seeks to change and oppress them.
The ending of the video is heartwarming and reminiscent of one of the final moments of The Graduate (without the somber final shot on the bus, thankfully).
Check out the video, below.
