The xx's new video for I See You highlight, "I Dare You," brings together a legendary team to create a colorful video that's essentially Ferris Bueller meets Calvin Klein fall '17. That's because director Alasdair McLellan collaborated with CK creative director Raf Simons on the project, and employed the talents of some of pop culture's brightest up-and-comers: Millie Bobby Brown, Ashton Sanders, Paris Jackson, Lulu and Ernesto Cervantes.
The video is "our love letter to Los Angeles, a city close to our hearts where we wrote and recorded parts of our album I See You," the xx said.
It's the third video the band has done with McLellan, and their first time with Simons contributing creative direction. In the visual, the five young stars play hooky and visit a haunted spot in Los Angeles, where they slow dance next to a swimming pool--romantic, lo-fi magic.
"It was amazing to work with both of them and such a pleasure to meet and work with Millie, Paris, Ashton, Lulu and Ernesto," the xx added. "Thank you to Calvin Klein and everyone involved."
