She Looks So Perfect video

5 Seconds of Summer release the music video for their single She Looks So Perfect. The video features the band performing their single and people stripping off their clothes down to their underwear. Ashton Irwin:

I think we’ve never wanted anything more than for people to get nude in a video of ours. I don’t know — the director, Frank Borin, came to us with the idea and we’re like, “That’s absolutely perfect.” He’s like, “Yeah, the song should put people in a craze and make them want to take their clothes off.” And I was like, “Sounds good.”
