'Mess It Up'
17 January 2024 4 mins 15s

Nicholas Hoult goes for a walk with a capital W in this promo for ‘Mess It Up’ by The Rolling Stones. When Hoult's character has the mother of all arguments with his partner, he grabs his coat and storms out. The world is his oyster, and he's got the boots to walk it.

To borrow a phrase from Peter Fonda in 'The Wild Angels', Hoult is now free to do what he wants to do. He dances past a boy with a Hot Lips T-shirt, snaffles a burger and fries from a diner, and goes where the music takes him. It's a chance to let loose that Hoult takes full advantage of.

The song is called 'Mess It Up' though, and director Calmatic has even more fun with the return leg and a beardy, remorseful Hoult. A lot has changed since he's been away... we'll let you spot the differences.
