Director Mike Baldwin has our hearts melting in this touching music video for The Vamps' Middle Of The Night.

The video is fairly simple but very affecting, centered around a couple who are breaking up and communicating exclusively through sign language to the lyrics of the song. It also sees the guys of the band, onstage, channeling all the youthful energy. Yep, that's basically the concept. But see if you can watch it until the end without going, "aw..." 

From the director

"It's one of those videos where the idea came as soon as I heard the song. The lyrics felt like a conversation between a couple breaking up and I thought sign language would be a different way to approach the acting. We found Rose, an incredible young deaf actress, who pretty much broke everyone's hearts on set with her performance. So grateful for the support of the band and label with this idea as the release coincides wonderfully (and serendipitously) with Deaf Awareness Week."
