The Australian band 5 Seconds of Summer decided to become the first creators who, after the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Russia in Ukraine, filmed Ukrainian territories in a music clip. The celebrities have chosen Ukrainian fields as the place for shooting. The video for the song Bad Omens is made in a minimalist style with the participation of Ukrainian actors, directors, operators, and stylists.
"We thank all Ukrainians who have joined the project. The images so inspired them, and we are so grateful that we managed to work with them," writes the Australian group on Instagram.
The name of the song already speaks about its content. Just as Ukraine is now, it has told the hero's pain.
"So this is where we are. I should've seen it comin'," sings for 5 seconds of Summer.
