Happy 2021! To celebrate the dawn of a new year, the one and only Harry Styles has dropped a new music video for his song “Treat People with Kindness,” a mantra he often repeats on merch and in social posts that should be everyone’s mantra for this fresh new chapter.
As fans previously predicted, the video also features a special costar: Fleabag star and creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who opens the 3-minute video in what appears to be an office setting. Everything is shot in black and white with an old Hollywood feel, as though “TPWK” is the opener for a classic movie. Phoebe, who’s wearing a white suit with sequin details, bids farewell to her boss and heads out, and soon we see Harry onstage in a sequined suit of his own, paired with an argyle vest and bow tie. From the old school microphone to the crowd before him, Harry seems to be performing in a nightclub, and busts a few moves alongside his backup dancers as he sings.
Phoebe eventually descends the stairs and joins in the fun, dancing on the floor as Harry jumps from table to table, making his way to her. The Fleabag star loses her jacket to reveal a matching argyle sweater vest, and the two hit the stage and perform together in a dance that reminds us of a classic Hollywood movie scene, with a bit more silliness and cheekiness thrown in. Nothing is too perfectly choreographed, though Phoebe’s cartwheel is pretty impressive. The two look like they’re having a lot of fun, and the video is an ideal vision for 2021 — positive vibes, a little sparkle, and a message of love, acceptance, and kindness.
Check out the video below and start your new year off on a flashy, fun, and Harry Styles-filled note.
