The Chainsmokers 'Paris' by Mister Whitmore

Luke Bather - 23rd Feb 2017

Victoria's Secret model Martha Hunt gets an unconventional panoramic view in Mister Whitmore's video for The Chainsmokers.

A little bit like Pixar's Up – except with no balloons, no talking dog, and a lingerie model instead of a cantankerous old man (so basically there's just a flying house) – the video uses some great VFX to lift up Hunt above the clouds, before dropping her back to Earth with the gentlest of thuds.

Intercut with a dramatic, windy performance from the Chainsmoking duo, the clip manages some dream-like visuals, and mercifully it never really falls into any of the visual trappings you might expect from a song called Paris.
