B2 direct a breezy, nostalgic promo for Izzy Bizu's tribute to a classic British sports car, MG. 

Exuding Americana and late 70's aesthetics, B2 focus on the journey, a thrill-ride where Izzy and her man stop off at some characteristic spots - including a diner and old fashioned gas station.

The creative team have redressed a handful of UK locations to look as if they were shot Stateside - no easy feat, and testament to some excellent art direction from Sasha Webster. And of course, it takes place mostly in the front seat of an MG car - keeping the namesake of the track front and centre. An ambitious concept with great execution and a feelgood vibe.

B2: 

We wanted to create that iconic late 70s American cinema feel.

"We were so happy to have the creative ability to recreate some iconic moments in cinema in a music video - such a dream come true for us. Izzy and her team gave us the ability to recreate something special, touching on films like Paris, Texas and True Romance.

"We wanted to create that iconic late 70s American cinema feel. The project tells the story of lovers on the run - no route, no destination, just fun young love enjoying the moment. The video takes us on a journey, filled with mischief, happiness and adventure, as Izzy and her partner ride through the night without a second thought.

"We feel so happy to have been given this chance with our team to create this film and are very happy with the final product."
