Troye Sivan Lucky StrikeTroye Sivan’s video for “Lucky Strike” is unapologetically about a summer crush between two men. It does not shy away from the implied meanings in the song’s lyrics, and Troye walks a fine line between being dramatic and being humorous in playing a love struck young man crushing on a beach-boy hunk.

In fact, some of the best parts of the video are the affectionate bits of advice that Troye doles out to his sister on how to handle the red carpet and the press. Another funny moment is when they both realize that they would like to bump into actor Timothee Chalamet at the event …
