One adjective above all others applies to Emil Nava's new Calvin video: icy. It's so icy, in fact, it has towering blocks of ice around "stone-cold diva" Kehlani, and Lil Yachty is performing on a ice sports car. You heard that right. A sports car made of ice. How cool is that?

Above all, Nava shows his mastery of the pop video medium with Faking It, collaborating with legendary DoP Martin Coppen to achieve a great look. The mix of formats and double exposures is classy, and it's a lovely edit by Sean Fazende, and grade by Aubrey Woodiwiss.

There's no faking that this is a very cool (as well as icy) video.
