You’ll see the jeans on 120 dancers from The National Dance Institute, a public dance program in New York City, who dance throughout a school wearing denim cutoffs, stretch skinnies, denim vest, jackets and more.
The clip begins at a voting rally at a school, where a small boy is excited to receive a balloon. When it pops, students in class and through the school freeze, fearing a gunshot.
The 120 kids recover from the shock and begin dancing throughout the school to SIA’s lyrics:
“Lost youth, where did we go wrong?
I’m winning for me, though
I’m lighting the long way home
Oh, the past it wanted me dead
Oh, the past tormented me
But the battle was lost
‘Cause I’m still here”
