Luke Bather - 12th July 2017

It's always nice to dream, right? Sometimes you walk down a street and project all of your ambitions onto it. Thousands of people are probably doing it right now. Well, Philip Andelman pits dreams against reality in his video for Major Lazer.

The kid in Andelman's clip for Know No Better dreams of fame, fortune, celebrity pals, the dream girl - the whole package, basically. We see his dream scenario cut against its miserable real-world parallel – which is tragic in places. But some ambitions are strong enough to be willed into existence.
