Halsey
"Now or Never"
6 mins 07s

UK Promos

Fans of Baz Luhrman’s ‘Romeo + Juliet’ will appreciate this story-driven promo for Halsey’s ‘Now or Ever’. Shot with a hyperreal sheen by Partizan’s Sing J. Lee, the promo sees Halsey and her beau caught in the crossfire.

Even if the slow-burning track never kicks into gear, there’s plenty on-screen to chew over. Neon crosses, gold-plated Kalashnikovs, shocking blue hair… they didn’t have any of these in Shakespeare’s day.

There are some cute nods to Luhrman’s Verona Beach-set remix, particularly the male lead’s angel wings. Meanwhile, Lee flexes his action muscles with a graphic final showdown - a tale of thwarted romance and empty clips.

Lucozade Sport
"Anthony Joshua"

That tag line is now repeating itself in my head in the voice of David Brent.
