The song's music video was directed by Philip Andelman, whose also filmed clips for the likes of Taylor Swift ("Safe and Sound
," "Begin Again
"), Meghan Trainor ("Lips Are Movin
") and Selena Gomez ("Slow Down
"). The clip tells the story of a science student with dreams of dancing. Diplo, Cabello, and Travis Scott, all make cameo appearances, but Quavo is missing.
"For me, Major Lazer is the ne plus ultra of dance music videos," said Andelman. "It's always been a dream of mine to work with them and be included in their insane canon. Which is where the idea for the video started, with a daydream."
"I used to space out all through high school about being the sickest guitarist in the world to impress girls but all I could play in real life was a quarter-speed version of Slash's solo from 'Sweet Child o' Mine
,'" he continued. "I thought it could be fun to do a video that married a kid's daydream of being a Major Lazer backup dancer (i.e. the ultimate goal for any dancer out there) with the reality of quotidian ass-kickings and unbearable siblings."
