A recent Harry Types music video is at all times an auspicious prospect. And although any outdated one will do, when he options somebody whose attraction, charisma, and pantsuit-wearing talents rival his, certainly it counts for double good luck.
However solely in my most outlandish fantasies did I think about he’d procure Phoebe Waller-Bridge, of Fleabag fame, as a co-star. The considered Harry Types and Phoebe Waller-Bridge doing a synchronized dance routine whereas carrying Gucci pantsuits is greater than my mind can deal with, and but:
“Treat People With Kindness,” which is filmed in black and white, opens with Types performing in an old-timey nightclub. He’s ultimately joined by Waller-Bridge, who seems to be enjoying a form of debonair nightclub govt. The 2 are wearing head-to-toe Gucci: tailor-made blazers over tinsel-threaded argyle sweaters, wide-legged white pants and cummerbunds. Matching cherry-red manicures set the entire thing off.
The result’s a video whose vibes are just too good. And I’ve to marvel at Types’s timing; simply as he did when he dropped the video for “Watermelon Sugar” — a tune “dedicated to touching” — over our socially distanced summer season, this one has come at an excellent time.
As for Waller-Bridge, this isn’t her first foray into the music video world: She just lately directed Phoebe Bridgers’s video for her tune “Savior Complex” (starring the singer’s rumored beau, Paul Mescal of Regular Individuals and attractive chain-necklace fame). I can’t think about her subsequent collaboration can prime both of those, however after this, it looks like something is feasible, so right here’s to hoping she exhibits up in Cardi B’s subsequent video.
