One year ago today, Louis Tomlinson released the music video for Miss You. The video follows Louis from a bar to an art gallery to a club, trying to have a good time while pining for a love interest who is not there.
The video featured a mix of Louis’ real-life friends and actors playing the part of Louis’ “lad crew” on a night out. The video follows their quest for a good time with Louis repeatedly being distracted from the fun by the thought that he’s missing someone. He knows he should be having a good time, but he’s melancholy with the thought that “shit, maybe I miss you”.
The video has more than 16.6 million views on YouTube. A behind the scenes video was also released as well as a series of behind the scenes snippets and clips from the video that were used to tease the release of the video.
In the behind the scenes video, Louis said, “We just really wanted to capture that moment from, you know, kind of pure euphoria…and then, just like, emptiness….and we’ve done a really good job. I’m excited for you guys to see it.”
