David LaChapelle's official UK promo for Lost.

David LaChapelle is a photographer and director who has worked in the fields of fashion, advertising, and fine art photography. He is famous for his surreal and often humorous style. He is sometimes confused with Dave Chappelle, the comedian.

LaChapelle created The United Kingdom Channel 4 promo of the first season of Lost, which had the characters cleverly paired as dancing partners. For example, Boone and Claire were paired (life and death) with Locke and Walt conducting. The video was shot on March 19, 2005. His original promo, known as the "music" version, used the song Numb by Portishead as the soundtrack. This version was aired on E4, a sister channel to Channel 4, in the leadup to the launch of series one. However, it was superseded by a second cut, known as the "voiceover" version, which is instead dubbed with quotes from the main cast members, over the soundtrack of Channel 1 Suite by Cinematic Orchestra. It is also interesting to note that in these videos, which seems to depict the immediate aftermath of the crash, Claire is not pregnant.
