A new music video has been released showing Letterkenny in an edgy, criminal light.
Counterfeit is the new single from Le Groupe Fantastique, an electronic band from London.
The group made up of Al Baker (synths and bass), Tom Gee (synths) and Jono Marshall (vox) describe their music as 80’s influenced, synth heavy, floor fillers.
The Neo-Noir style video features up and coming local actor Aidan O Sullivan and Thomas Sharkey taking part in a shady deal involving counterfeit money. One double-cross later, a femme fatale (played by Kaireht Yovera), is brought in to settle the matter.
The music video was shot in both London and Donegal and was directed by Donegal film-maker Gerard Lough.
Local locations that can be seen in the video include The Pulse nightclub and the Regional Culture Centre. In the dark of night, the lights and architecture of the Letterkenny Courthouse and RCC set the scene for the crime drama.

Despite it being his 13th music video, Lough feels it will be anything but unlucky.
He said: “Counterfeit is one of best songs I’ve done a video for and this band should have a bright future.”
The song will also appear in Loughs’ next feature film, Spears, a thriller which will be released next year and also feature music by Irish bands such as Sleep Thieves and Exit: Pursued by a bear.
