Louis Tomlinson's video for Miss You took us all on a a lads' night out - from the streets to a bar to an art gallery and on to the club, in a night filled with booze and antics and the realization that he misses someone. The video perfectly captures the feel of a lads' night, complete with video snippets that look like they were taken straight from social media. The snippets were, in fact, teasers for the video in the days before its release. In the video above, we've ranked our Top 10 favorite behind the scenes teasers from the Miss You video shoot. Do you agree?
The video opens with Louis wistful on a rooftop as the sun rises, flashbacks of the previous night leading into the video, which follows the previous night out.
The lads meet up and head over to a bar where they knock back a few pints before heading to an art gallery where they hobnob with the artistic crowd before causing a scene. Louis has a quiet moment alone, realizing, "Shit, maybe I miss you." Then, it's on to the club, with more drinks and merriment as his friend snatches his phone because he keeps checking it. The video ends with Louis alone in the empty bar at the end of the night, again realizing that despite being surrounded by "his people" and living the life, he still misses that someone.
