Watch: Jamie XX’s Video for “Gosh” Is Nothing Short of A Masterpiece

No tricks, no CGI, just beautiful filmmaking.

Jamie XX has just shared a new video for his In Colour track “Gosh”, and it’s a definite contender for best music video of the year.

Directed by Romain Gavras, the video takes place in a washed out, dystopian future where people plug in to virtual reality for entertainment, leaving them listless in reality. This story is centered around a man who takes over a town with help from his loyal followers.

Shot in the Chinese town of Tianducheng, the film features a real 354-foot replica of the Eiffel Tower. Despite what you may think, no CGI was used in the making of this film. Every body you see is a real actor (approximately 400 of them) and all sets are real.

And yes, that includes the opening scene where the camera pans out of a building full of people standing in the window. Watch below via Apple Music:
