During Fightstar‘s downtime following the release and promotion of their 2015 album, ‘Behind The Devil’s Back’, drummer Omar Abidi has been focusing on his career as an actor.

Earlier this year, Abidi starred in the live action remake of Disney’s Aladdin, and more recently he appears on the Christmas television advert for British catalogue retail chain, Argos.

The avert sees the drummer putting his skills to good use, along with Nandi Bushell, on a toy drum kit playing along to the 1985 song ‘Don’t You (Forget About Me)’ by Simple Minds.
