Robert Pattinson (David Bowie & Mickey Rourke – Shining Star)

In 2013, Robert Pattinson appeared in a series of advertisements for Christian Dior, directed by Romain Gavras, son of legendary filmmaker Costa-Gavras and director of music videos such as Kanye West, Frank Ocean & Jay Z’s “No Church in the Wild.” In January 2016, I (Teriek Williams) re-edited those collection of short ads into a music video of sorts, set to the song “Shining Star (Makin’ My Love),” a deep cut from the late David Bowie’s 1987 album Never Let Me Down. The song features a surprise guest “rap” by Academy Award-nominee Mickey Rourke.

Here is the video I edited:
