Andrew Donoho manages to make a video featuring numerous car stunts a beautifully graceful affair, for Khalid's seductive, slow-burning banger Better.

With the main man taking position in the centre of a car park in downtown LA at night, he gives his performance while being carefully avoided by one, two and then numerous BMWs, drifting, sliding, or just driving - and missing him by centimetres.

It's a gorgeously stylish way to bring a frisson of danger to the video, with the seamless multiple car VFX work achieved by a team led by Donoho himself.
