Zayn throws a properly wild house party in the very stylish video for Still Got Time, directed by Calmatic. 

Further distancing himself from the squeaky-clean boy band days of yore, Zayn gives over a Gatsby-like vibe of disinterestness as the world's coolest kids descent on his place and fill it with smoke.

The hazy, degraded footage feels almost like trying to replay the night before only to find your brain scrambled by the night of debauchery. You end up with some bizarre, unconnected fragments that make no sense out of context but certainly look like fun.

Extra surrealism points for the unexpected bit of VFX/wirework as one party-goer floats her way down some stairs half way through.
 

CALMATIC:

"I was asleep in L.A. when I got a call from Luti Media and Zayn's management at 7AM. They told me to hop on the next flight to London. It was my first time in London so I didn't know what to expect. When I got there we met at his crib and he said he wanted to throw the wildest house party imaginable. So we invited everyone we knew and let the cameras roll. The rest is history."
