In this charming video for Alesso's Sweet Escape directed by M-I-E, everyday traffic sign figures reveal their hidden secret life, coming alive at night when we’re not looking.

It's a simple, sweet love story of two figures (a Red 'Stop' guy and a Green 'Go' girl) during their exciting night out on the town - starting at an underground rave, then stealing into the night to find the best view of the city lights.

Allessandro Lindblad - aka Alesso - and Amy Thomson came up with the story, and the British animation team, following up their recent video for Culture Shock's City Lights, have brought a winning idea very impressively to life, particularly with the sensitively-animated characters that draw the viewer into this delightful little tale.
