Cool skater kids and their friends take over a warehouse and start playing with fire in James Zwadlo's lyric video for The Chainsmokers.

A combination of motion tracked text and good old-fashioned sharpie on cardboard make up the bulk of the video's lyrical displays here, set to a montage of skateboarding, pyrotechnics and skateboarding pyrotechnics. It's a simple, effective way to let the lyrics take centre stage whilst still managing to be interesting to look at.
