The 19-year-old opens the video with visuals and typography that nod to Spike Jonze’s 2009 film Where the Wild Things Are, introducing her cast of friends with a voice over, saying, «To me, ‘where the wild things are’ is a place that exists in our minds. It’s a place of liberty and shamelessness. It can take a split second of our lifetime to find it, but once you do you’ll be free.»

The video follows the group as they hang out, play music, take pictures, light off fireworks and stay up all night. The song is an ode to friendship outside of conformity and Cara and Co. make it look appealing, as they define their own sense of what’s cool.
