A young car wash attendant struggles to make a living in this video for London band Another Sky by Lebanese-American director Najeeb Tarazi. Set in Los Angeles, where Tarazi is based, “Chillers” stars Jonni Truelove, a non-actor street cast from within the cycling community. Prioritizing a lead with a true ease and intimacy with his bike, Tarazi further explains:
“People think of LA as a car city but there is a huge population of young people who rely on bicycles to get around. The band and I felt that it would be a striking contrast to set a song about the hollow striving of Hollywood to a video about a broke young man who works at a car wash and dreams of fixing his bike.”
