Jack Antonoff might not be your typical romcom leading man, and he might be cursed with bad luck, but damned if he isn't persistant in getting the perfect take in this tie-in with new film Love, Simon.
Katy Perry proves to be the opposite of a "let them eat cake" type as she faces serious repercussions for dreaming about being a sword-wielding knight instead of a prim and proper royal doomed to marry a pig.
In truth, the Australian lads in 5 Seconds Of Summer don't have to dream about what it's like to be rich — unless Duran Duran are taking all the songwriting royalties — but this fun video casts them as regular working folk dreaming of all the outlandish ways they'd spend those bookoo bucks (including: a music video).
5 Seconds Of Summer reinforce their stronghold on that sweetspot between pop/punk and boy band thanks to this cartoonish tale about rallying all the underdogs for a parade that would make Delta Tau Chi proud.
Isaac Rentz, director: "This is my 4th video for the band. They're always fun to work with because they have a great sense of humor but they also take the message behind their videos seriously. The band wanted to make something with a revolutionary theme that showed them sticking up for underdogs. I worked with my production designer to create a mad max-style vehicle that they would drive through the suburbs, made completely from scraps that you'd find in a neighborhood garage. It was an intense night shoot, with hundreds of extras on the Warner Brothers studio lot. I was nervous about it all coming together, but I remember the first moment we saw the band rounding the corner on that big smoking, blinking vehicle, we all knew we had found the right visual to match the song."'
