It's one of the latest cover videos from the YouTube channel "Without
Music
, which is run by an Amsterdam-based studio called House of Halo.

The channel (which, yes, takes requests) has been publishing music-less music videos for nearly four years. The first one they did was Pharrell's "Happy" in 2014.

TBH, these videos are making a strong case for the fact that music videos are awkward AF to produce. Even Pharrell almost looks a little lost without the music!

Since then, some of their biggest videos have amassed millions of views — like this one of Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass."
