Rob Ulitski - 31st Oct 2019

Charli XCX and Colin Solal Cardo team up for White Mercedes, their second video collaboration. 

We open with Charli sitting in a white Mercedes, performing to camera - so far so normal right? Apart from this Mercedes is suspended vertically from a crane, and Charli is effortlessly delivering her lines in a similarly vertical position. My knees hurt just thinking about it. 

Then Charli is riding a monster truck crushing cars in its path, performing alongside a white horse and dancing in front of breathtaking scenery. The art-direction is on point, featuring stunning minimalist props and backgrounds that are inkeeping with the soft pastel colour palette. 

It's dreamy with a hint of surrealism, and is another strong entry in Charli XCX's videography.
