You know what it’s like to fall hard for someone (or something, like John Green’s “The Fault In Our Stars”?) The helium-high vibes, that floating feeling, all that aimless wandering and smiling at anyone regardless of whether you know them — Charli XCX channels all of that and some must-see moments of Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort as “The Fault In Our Stars”’ star-crossed teenaged lovers Hazel and Gus in her new video for “Boom Clap.”
The Sing J. Lee-directed clip takes the viewer on a gorgeous, blissed-out stroll through the Amsterdam city, following the “SuperLove” singer over rivers, under bridges, into a junkyard, through a carnival, and into the back of an LED-equipped van.
Despite Charli’s heart radiating onomatopoeia, she walks the Dutch city alone, which is fine considering Gus and Hazel’s love is almost too much to bear.
Charli XCX’s uplifting “Boom Clap” celebrates Hazel and Gus the way they should be enjoyed — forever young and forever in love.
