The pair stop to dance with the locals and have fun in a festival-themed setting as the flags of the countries of the world fly above them. Not to mention, legendary DJ Icon and hitmaker, David Guetta can also be spotted having fun, smiling and dancing in this momentous video

I grew a lot as a person and as a director. I am so grateful for this opportunity to work with world-class talent on the biggest, Hollywood level, music video of my career to date.”
