Charli XCX & Troye Sivan Travel Back To “1999” In Their Nostalgic Video
Oops!… she did it again. If you thought Charli XCX would never top the tables-turning, feelings-producing “Boys” video, you were wrong. Britain’s holy queen of electro-pop outdoes herself with “1999,” traveling back in time to that very year with a little help from a Lyft driver and a magical playlist. And, of course, she’s not alone. Joining her on this glorious adventure is Troye Sivan. Together, they revisit the movies, music and pop culture moments that made the end of the millennium so special.
Where to start? Well, it’s hard to beat Charli and Troye reenacting that scene in Titanic. Other highlights include their recreation of the gravity-defying effects in The Matrix and a tribute to Marilyn Manson’s most iconic red carpet moment. Part of the fun is picking all the references. I got TLC, Spice Girls, Steve Jobs, New Radicals, American Beauty, Eminem, Backstreet Boys, the dancing baby from Ally McBeal, Justin Timberlake, The Blair Witch Project and The Sims, but I’m sure I missed a few. Watch up top.
