Loved the video. Very moving. While I don't exactly know what Frank might have been going for with the video, I think a YouTube commenter had a good take on it:
Quote:
Seamus Heaney famously uses the image of digging as a metaphor for writing poetry and rediscovering his roots. The honesty and introspection involved in Frank's music is sometimes very resonant of this attitude, if not style. Thus the crowds and interest gathered around the digging becomes a metaphor for the strange relationship between personal reflection and public music. While I have no idea whether this was Frank's intentions with this video, but I still think that it's a beautiful image.

I thought the video was just basically him digging himself a hole deeper and deeper which seems like a huge deal at the time until he finally gets out of it only to show he's clearly done it many times before and probably will again. A metaphor for fucking up in relationships that would fit the general theme of the record.
I like this a lot more
