Rob Ulitski - 9th Mar 2021

Louis Bhose pays homage to those classic teen films of the 80s made by the guy in the songtitle, then gives it a good old twist. 

In his darkly comic promo for Maisie Peters' John Hughes Movie, Bhose presents a world in which Maisie is an outsider, desperate to get the guy but always missing out. 

When she is at home, she is stalked by a raunchy couple who can't seem to get a room - their own one, anyway. And just when it seems all hope is lost, Bhose delivers an unexpected yet brilliant twist. 

Washed with neon lighting and gritty textures, the video is a welcome step outside of the mainstream, and boasts a perfect balance between vintage and contemporary aesthetics.
