Ian Robertson returns with his first music video in ages - in fact, his first made in the UK in eight years - for electronic music duo Honne and their new track What Would You Do?

The concept explores a suburban love story between two young characters, played brilliantly by Daniel Ooko and Rebecca Louise. 

Egged on by a vision of featured artist Pink Sweat$ - reflected in a puddle - Ooko gains the courage to approach his neighbour, impressing her with his slick yet understated dance moves. They take a drive through the town - well, at least they would do, if he could get the car in gear.

And they almost make out, until a guitar-wielding leather jacket-clad bully persuades Louise to leave with him, ending in a climactic face off - all while Honne's James and Andy cameo as neighbourhood workers, quietly observing proceedings.

"Honne came to me with an idea about a young boy that takes revenge on his bullies," reveals Robertson. "I thought the lyrics were screaming out for a love story, so I took the elements of Honne's idea and rejigged it into a weird offbeat love triangle!" 

It's absurd fun, in the same vein as Robertson's lighthearted work for giant dance hits like Duke Dumont's Need U (100%) a few years ago. An unconventional yet charming concept that perfectly fits the track.
