The Old Captain Video Clip: Who’s Who in the Cast

Brillig’s video clip for their sea shanty drinking song “The Old Captain” is a lament for the loss of a beloved character.

The clip features radio legend David “Daisy” Day as the Old Captain himself, along with cameos from many SA artists & personalities. See below for a full list of credits.

Made by the extraordinarily talented Nima Nabili Rad, Daniel Principe & crew, the clip was filmed at Brillig’s spiritual home the wonderful Grace Emily Hotel in late September 2010.

“The Old Captain” is a track on the Adelaide trio’s acclaimed album, “The Red Coats”, available now from the Brillig store (
