Mercy, what marvellous timing to drop your new music video, Shawn Mendes.
Just a day out from the release of your new album ‘Illuminate’ and all… Well played.
We’re really liking what Shawn’s bringing to the table in this clip too; a young woman is seemingly toying with his emotions and he feels that he’s powerless to escape her clutches.
Visually, this is represented as Shawn being trapped in a car which is filling with water. He seems powerless to escape and utterly clueless that the most effective way to do so would be to smash the damned windows.
We’d like to think that if he was ever presented with this precise situation in real life, his reactions would be a little different. Otherwise ‘Illuminate’ may very well be the last we hear of him.
Does he escape the car, meantime?
