Pharrell Williams has just unveiled a stunning music video for his collaboration with Daft Punk, “Gust of Wind” off his recent album, G I R L. The music video was directed by Edgar Wright, the talented director behind films such as Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.
The “Gust of Wind” music video places Pharrell in a journey through an autumnal bewitched forest, complete with hand-clapping nymphs & choreographed aerial acrobatics and dancers. Through the entirely of the video, Pharrell waltzes through the trees, while trapeze woodland fairies twirl around him on a mountainside. Although the video doesn’t necessarily tell a story, Wright employs enough visual tricks and interesting imagery to create an aesthetically pleasing, fun and lighthearted video.
Director: Edgar Wright
Producers: Michael Angelos & Isaac Rice
Composers: Pharrell Williams, Thomas Bangalter & Guy-Manuel De Homem-Christo ( Daft Punk )
