New York City-based band 'Gambles' has created a music video from the perspective of a homeless man. Music videos have become an important medium for channeling new messages and additional layers to the tracks they accompany.

The music video of 'You Won't Remind It' delivers an insider eye of Chris; a homeless man befriended over the last three years by frontman Matthew Daniel Siskin of Gambles.

Chris takes a GoPro camera with him during his street wanders of New York, resulting in an insightful and jarringly beautiful display of homeless life. Chris has lived between Versace and Vera Wang on Mercer Street for 16 years and has been sharing his experiences with Siskin for the past three. The music video is a short documentation of his reality.
