Harry Styles releases new video for ‘Treat People With Kindness’
With the year off to a gloomy start, Harry Styles brought us the joy and optimism we all need with the release of the video for ‘Treat People With Kindness’ which features the amazing actress and writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
‘Treat People With Kindness’ is a track from Styles’ second studio album Fine Line which was released in 2019, However, Syles has been using the phrase as a sort of ‘mantra’ for some time now with fans spotting him incorporating the phrase into outfits and live performances.
The music video was directed by Ben and Gabe Turner (who also directed the recent video for Golden) the video takes on a 50’s aesthetic, with the couple complimenting each other in stunning matching Gucci suits. In an interview with Grazia Gabe Turner has said that the inspiration behind the video came from him and Harry watching old videos of the likes of the Nicholas Brothers, Fred Astaire, and Ginger Rogers. ‘One day, we were just talking about the videos we were watching. We thought the dance videos were really cool, so I said to Harry, “Well, what about you and Phoebe dancing together?”’
The video was shot in 2019 but was only released on New Years Day the entire message of the song is about love, kindness, and positivity something I think we all need right now.
