Harry Styles makes music video on just $300 budget for new single Daylight with James Corden's help


Harry Styles and James Corden set out with $300 and a dream on Thursday night’s episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden. 

The singer-songwriter, 28, and the talk show host, 43, took to the streets of New York City with a camera crew to make a music video for Styles’ new song Daylight. 

Daylight is fifth track of 13 on Styles’ third studio album Harry’s House which was released on Friday, May 20.

While they’re two of the biggest stars in the world, their adventure didn’t get off to a great start with the first two people they talked to being unable or unwilling to let them film in their homes. 

At the third location, Corden hit the buzzer and, when a voice came over the intercom, he identified himself as a pizza delivery man. 

They were buzzed in, and the pair ran up two flights of stairs and knocked on the tenant’s door. 

Harry hid while James Corden asked the residents, four young women, if they’d be interested in letting James and his team shoot a music video there. 

The tenants seemed to both know who James was and liked his work as they immediately jumped on board with the idea before shrieking when James pulled Harry into their view.

Harry and James began to check out the apartment with Corden remarking that he liked ‘the vibe’ of the apartment. 

James then asked Harry what they needed and Harry replied that they needed props and costumes. 

The Into the Woods star then walked into one of the women’s bedrooms and found out she was a huge One Direction and Harry Styles fan with pictures of him all over her room including a portrait of him as Harry Potter. 

James told Harry to wait outside of the room before joking with the resident that he was worried she was a ‘psychopath.’ 

Next, they caught a tour of the kitchen where a photo of a few of the residents with competing late night host Jimmy Fallon hung from the wall. 

‘I’m deciding not to take that personally, okay?’ James said with one of the women responding, ‘Take the high road.’

Then, James and Harry hit the mother load – a fully stocked closet full of outfits for them to use in the video. 

James pulled out a gold fedora and put it on Harry’s head and told him he found it ‘annoying’ how it seemed Harry could pull off just about anything. 

‘If I put that on, I’d look like I’m a sort of singing telegram,’ James joked. ‘And you put it on and they’ll probably sell out in a day.’ 

To emphasize his point, the person showing them around put a matching hat on James’ head as he was talking. 

James then put a giant plush bowtie around Harry’s neck before looking at him in awe. 

‘Suddenly I’m like, “It’s actually really cool,”‘ James said.

James then asked the residents to call some friends over for the music video while he and Harry got down to work. 

He directed Harry into a bathtub and told him to ‘pop his top off’ which Harry was clearly reluctant to do, and he asked James if he could keep it on. 

‘It’s up to you because you know you got an album to sell,’ James said before saying Harry could keep it on. 

James then turned out the lights and grabbed a small fan which he shot the video through with his phone camera light on. 

The light from his phone created fun green and blue colors against Styles’ face. Daylight then started playing and James said he wanted it to be ‘sexy as f*ck.’ 

Corden then gave a series of directions like ‘you’re frightened but not that frightened’ and told him to flip his hair and rock out at different points.

As the girls decorated with James, the video cut to Harry in the bathroom making a confession and saying, ‘I can’t stress this enough, this was all James’ idea.’ 

The residents cut up confetti and Styles said, ‘I was in a Christopher Nolan movie. Now this is my dressing room.’

The video then cut to different women as they called and told their friends to come over because they were shooting a music video with Harry Styles. 

James enlisted their help to throw confetti at Harry for one part of the video. 

‘Should we just scrap it?’ Harry asks in another confessional. ‘Is it too late to just do carpool karaoke?’ 

They then set up for a slow motion shot. Harry then explained how one would do a slow motion scene, including playing the music at 2x speed, before James asked him what his song would sound like at that speed. 

He then gave an example with James pushing him to go faster and faster and then even higher with his voice.

When they move on, the video cut to James emerging from the bathroom in a full green suit. 

Harry asked him, ‘Why are you wearing that?’ and James replied ‘You’ll see,’ before he asked the residents to take them to the roof. 

She tells them they aren’t really allowed to be up there before taking them up. 

Their roof had a stellar view of the New York City skyline including the Freedom Tower and the Empire State Building. 

James explained to Harry that they were going to do special effects with his green screen suit. 

Moving things around: For another part, Corden removed Harry's hat and moved it around Styles who he told to look surprised at the flying headwear

James then used a pole to lift to stuffed blue birds which circled Harry as he lip synced along with the song which has a line in it that goes ‘If I was a bluebird/ I would fly to you.’ 

For another part, Corden removed Harry’s hat and moved it around Styles, and he told to look surprised at the flying headwear. 

Then the girls’ friends started arriving. Corden opened the door for them and, when they met Styles, many of them started freaking out. 

Corden then ran in and shouted, ‘Stop! Stop! I will have you removed! Say a proper hi and keep it together.’ 

The next clip showed the group dancing together when a pizza delivery man rang the doorbell. Corden then asked him to come in and he danced with the group while holding all of the pizzas. 

James fed a slice to Styles with the Watermelon Sugar singer leaning up to take a bite.

The duo then wrapped up the shoot after they got a number of shots partying with all of the people in the living room.

The stuffed bluebirds, now sans Corden, flew around Harry, and then the four residents in black hoodies with glow sticks attached to them stood next to the star.
