Jamie xx, 'Gosh'

Director Romain Gavras' music video for Jamie xx's song "Gosh" doesn't attempt to play it safe in any way. Shot without any CGI or 3D effects, this video deserves recognition for its sheer scale. With a cast of 400 people that participate in synchronized choreography while storming the streets of Tianducheng, a Chinese town built in the image of Paris (including a 354-foot replica of the Eiffel Tower), the video is an awe-inducing spectacle.

Directed by Romain Gavras.
