Working from home is the perfect excuse to dance like nobody’s watching, as outlined by Niall Horan‘s latest version of the “No Judgement” music video, released Monday (March 16).
But Horan’s not the one prancing across the screen: He recruited 4-year-old ballet dancer Brody Schaffer, also known as Boss Baby Brody, to be the star. Schaffer’s gender-barrier-breaking moves and looks spotlight the song’s main message of being oneself without fearing judgment. Brody’s Instagram account, which hosts his viral ballet clips, accommodates “a world where you can be you.”
The wonder child extends his mini-routines on social media to a colorful, family-friendly clip where he leads his older sister, brothers and parents in a costume party-turned-dance extravaganza. Despite all the “stay at home” warnings ruffling people’s feathers, the Schaffer family ruffle their tutus for a sunny recital that’ll brighten anyone’s day.
“Got a special new video for #NoJudgement out today!” the Heartbreak Weather singer tweeted Monday. “This one stars the one and only Boss Baby Brody. Huge thanks to him and his family for being a part of it. Hope you enjoy.”
Horan revealed the first “No Judgement” music video on Feb. 6, in which the One Directioner exhibits a carefree older couple as the man and woman have reached a period of their life when their unconditional love overlooks their odd habits.
