Just when we thought Paul Mescal couldn't get any cooler...
Paul Mescal, Irishman and breakout star of Normal People, has added yet another feather to his cap by starring in the music video for 'Scarlet' by rock 'n roll legends The Rolling Stones. Just
The video shows Mescal, 24, drunkenly dancing along to the track while in a video that he apparently intends to send to his unrequited lover (the eponymous 'Scarlet'). Kind of like Christopher Walken in Weapon Of Choice but drunker and sadder.
If he hadn't been so damn good in Normal People, we'd say this is our favourite Mescal performance yet. It does, however, leapfrog the Ballyhaunis ad into second place.
We'd also like to note how appropriate the name of the song is, as we have all engaged in this kind of deeply scarlet behaviour before.
You can check out the video below and, in fairness, it's kind of a banger.
