The xx + Raf Simons + Millie Bobby Brown = I Dare You

There's Way Too Much Coolness In This Video

By Geoff Rynex ·
I apologize in advance for how effusive it's about to get in here, but one of Earth's coolest, sexiest bands just teamed up with the current fashion-world champion and our most treasured child actor to create a film about mischief and young love for the best song on their latest album. 

The video for The xx's I Dare You begins before the song does with Stranger Things' Millie Bobby Brown picking flower petals and chasing after a missed school bus. Soon enough, Paris Jackson is dancing around, and...is that Ashton Sanders from Moonlight? Yes it is. Everyone's outfitted in soon-to-be-released Calvin Klein, the label Raf Simons recently took over and reinvigorated (and just won CFDA awards for both best Menswear and Womenswear Designer of the Year with) and daring each other around Frank Lloyd Wright homes in Los Feliz. The world looks like your favorite Instagram filter, and things seem just generally better than they really are. It's a top-notch bit of escapism.

Like all days, you'll see a lot of clickbait bullshit today and over the weekend that says "this is the best thing you see today." This actually is.
