Charli XCX Gets in the Zombie Spirit with ‘After the Afterparty’ Video

By Amanda Wicks

Mere days after sharing her new track featuring Lil Yachty, “After the Afterparty,” Charli XCX is back with the music video. And releasing it on Halloween couldn’t have been more appropriate. It’s the perfect kind of treat to balance out any tricks.

In the video, Charli and her crew play zombies who are stumbling home from their late night out. It’s a clever play on the way any kind of big party can make a person feel, but coming on Halloween it feels even more appropriate.

But the video is less scary than sexy. Yes, that’s right, Charli wants to make zombies sexy, or at least less unattractive than other TV shows and movies have portrayed them to be. In the video, blood is hot pink not red, and when zombies gnaw on people’s necks and innards it looks more like bubblegum than anything really gross. Yachty even gets in the spirit, showing up with pink-dyed dreads and a pink plaid jacket and pants.

“After the Afterparty” will appear on Charli’s upcoming yet-untitled studio album.
