The Chainsmokers never cease to surprise — this time in the form of Camila Mendes starring in their “Side Effects” music video. Mendes plays Veronica Lodge on the CW’s Riverdale, and is certainly an unexpected choice as the lead for the video. The track itself features Emily Warren, and it was the fifth and final release of The Chainsmokers’ latest EP, Sick Boy…Side Effects.
Mendes plays a hotel worker, and she is told by her boss that she will be working over the weekend. Her frustration turns to conviction as she rips off her hotel uniform and makes the world her dance floor. She dances around the pool, on a security guard, and through the hotel hallways. Racy scenes play in the background of her dancing, and if viewers pay close enough attention, they will see Pall and Taggart of The Chainsmokers make cameos in the video.
