Filmed in Tokyo, the video opens with an elderly couple holding hands, preparing to face their final moments. They take a green pill enabling the husband and wife to re-live their youth for a last 24 hours. The pair are transported back to the '50s as we them (now played by Japanese artists "JOHNNY" Daigo Yamashita and Misaki Aono), dive into the Japanese Rockabilly culture.
The clip was directed by Frank Borin (Angel Haze, The Script, Tinashe), who also shot 5SOS's "She Looks So Perfect
" visual. It was inspired by a trip Borin took a decade previously in Japan, when he ventured through Yoyogi park and came across a huge group of Japanese rockabilly guys and girls.
"Every Sunday, they were dressed to the nines in full rockabilly gear, doing their hair out in public, taping up their decades old boots, and dancing the day away to 50's music blasting on their boombox," he recalled. "Flash forward to 10 years later, 5SOS was releasing Youngblood and the band and I were collaborating on another video together. The band were really into the idea of highlighting the rockabilly crew and we hung out with them for a couple days. They took us around Toyko and gave us a peak into their world which really lent itself to the spirit of the song and ultimately became the video."
