The Guy In Jimmy Napes' "Give It Up" Video Is Hot, But Where's Jimmy Napes?

You may recall me recently rambling about the proper outing as a pop star for Jimmy Napes, the British songwriter behind Disclosure's "Latch," Sam Smith's "I'm Not The Only One" and Clean Bandit's "Rather Be." His song "Give It Up" previews his upcoming EP, and now we have a music video for the funky track (which is produced by Howard from Disclosure).

The visual itself isn't really what I was expecting — it's one of these "artist is nowhere to be seen" affairs that tells the story of some random guy (pictured above) who has a drug addiction, is spiralling out of control, etc. etc. How very Sia of Jimmy.

At the very least, the guy has a nice mouth. And the track is still pretty rad.
