Calvin Harris & Ellie Goulding Struggle Through Bad Relationship in ‘Outside’ Video: Watch
This time, they’re a pair of Brits in dysfunctional relationships surrounded by some very sci-fi turns of event.
In “Outside,” Harris and Goulding play two halves of two different relationships that are not going well: there is fighting, there is shouting, there is the throwing of objects. The costuming, makeup and even set design are meant to lead us to believe they are chavs, lower class and rather uncool Brits. The reason this stereotype is invoked is unclear because the director, frequent Harris collaborator Emil Nava, takes things in the direction of special effects with implied sci-fi origins — as is frequently his style.
