CANADA's Lope Serrano's second video for Dua Lipa takes the colour-coded song-and-dance production of Physical in another sexy, surreal, and Western-themed direction. With the Director's Cut now released, Serrano's full vision is revealed.

Cowboy and cowgirl clowns join Dua in a Victorian hall - the Grosvenor House Hotel in London - and ride invisible horses, wrestle gainfully with a giant floating egg, practice their lines - and of course line-dance.

Of course its Dua Lipa who presides over all, memorably from the seat of a mechanical bull, and also donning the clown make-up - more assured and comfortable than ever as a bone fide music video icon.

Like it's star, the whole video is stunning to look at - and blissfully enjoyable from start to finish. A gorgeously glamourous, fabulously frivolous fever dream.
