Duke Dumont and Gorgon City have released the video for their collaborative new single ‘Real Life ft. NAATIONS.’ Drawing on the track’s lyrics, the video depicts a Highschool prom full of social media obsessed teens, leaving a wake of emojis behind them as they enjoy their night. The camera then fixes on the hero of the piece, a shy, quiet girl who dodges and weaves around the outstretched phones before running into the bathrooms to hide only to be discovered by the school’s resident mean girls. It’s a tale of the dark side of social media, cyber bullying and ultimately, revenge, as the video’s protagonist corners her tormentors and vomits emojis over them. Watch it below.
