Zayn seems poised to make a case for why he should be the next James Bond. Just after GQ named him the Most Stylish Man of the Year, Zayn is putting his super spy credentials to the test in his new music video for “Dusk Till Dawn” featuring Sia. The video has Zayn playing the part of a mysterious operative on the run.
Co-starring “Girls” actress Jemima Kirke, the video opens with Zayn creeping on Jemima from above. Zayn leaves his perch in a window to trail Jemima. After a mercifully short scene of Zayn trying to act, he starts laying the groundwork for an elaborate trap.
Using a bathtub full of firecrackers, Zayn traps the villains chasing him in a house under siege by the police who were forced to cut him loose. As the one-sided shootout goes down in an abandoned home, Zayn makes his getaway with Jemima in one of several high-end rides that appears in the video.
Watch Zayn live out his James Bond fantasy below, plus see what he had to say about the new visual on Twitter.
