"The Fear" (also known by its working title, "I Don't Know") is the UK Number 1-lead single from British singer-songwriter Lily Allen's second album It's Not Me, It's You. Originally, "Everyone's at It" was to be the lead single, but it was replaced instead with "The Fear". The song was released digitally on January 23, 2009. The Wideboys and StoneBridge have both remixed this track. (...)
The video was directed by Nez. It begins with Allen singing from inside a caravan with a washing strew on the right with underwear and a teddybear. She exits, however upon returning, the interior of the mobile home transforms into the hall of a country house. She then wanders throughout the ornate house, which contains colourful and expensive-looking rooms. The music video includes dancing butlers, giant dancing presents, dancing balloons, coloured smoke and confetti located around different rooms of the house. The last scene is shot from an aerial view; the camera moves upwards through grey, miserable clouds contrasting with the colourful "party" that Allen was attending throughout the rest of the song. The video was directed by Nez. It was filmed at Wrest Park, Bedfordshire, England.
