Ed Sheeran’s ‘Don’t’ Video Is a Rags-to-Riches Story

Subscribe to PopCrush on

Ed Sheeran‘s ‘Don’t’ has less-than-cheerful lyrics, but that didn’t stop the singer from putting a positive spin on the track’s music video.

The ‘Don’t’ visual shows the rags-to-riches story of an aspiring dancer. The video is so focused on his journey, in fact, that Ed only makes two brief cameos. While we love seeing the redhead perform, we admit that we were totally entranced as we watched the video’s star busting move after move.

The rags-to-riches theme isn’t new, but Ed manages to make it seem entirely fresh. The video kicks off by showing the young man sleeping on a mattress in an abandoned lot. Although he only has a pair of dusty, worn shoes on his feet, he gracefully slides into a standing position and effortless dances down the sidewalk.

Over the course of the video, he dances his way to clean clothes, new shoes and much better living accommodations. It’s an artful way to underscore Ed’s hard work and all of his accomplishments.

Check out the ‘Don’t’ video above!
