Audio-visual short stories

I’ve just realized why I like (some) music videos: they’re a visual/musical form of short stories, which are my thing as a writer and a reader. Case in point: I’d previously seen this video—“We’re Good” by Dua Lipa—and focused on the singer and song. But just now, for some reason (it was on tv), I finally noticed the story. It’s wonderful! The expressions on that poor lobster’s face (and the reasons for them). I love it. It’s a scant three minutes, but you get an entire story: you know the characters, you know why they’re in the situation they’re experiencing, you know the reasons for their feelings, and you get a satisfying ending. Give it a watch (it’s only three minutes). And yes, I like the song, too.
