‘Outer Banks’ stars groove to ’70s beat in Kygo music video shot in Carolina Beach

Summer may be coming to an end, but that’s not stopping the two leads from Netflix’s hit show Outer Banks from bringing the heat.

Chase Stokes and Madelyn Cline, a real-life couple who star as John B and Sarah on the smash hit series, fall in love all over again to the tune of Kygo’s new remix of Donna Summer’s classic 1979 dance jam, “Hot Stuff.”

In the music video, released Friday, Stokes and Cline can be seen dancing at The Fat Pelican and riding a bike around the historic Fort Fisher State Historic Site and Carolina Beach State Park.

The retro-inspired visual, which premiered on Friday, September 18, follows the Outer Banks costars and real-life couple as they return to the barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina. After climbing on the back of Stokes’ bicycle, Cline, 22, and the actor, 28, sneak into the local bar The Fat Pelican, pick up a few drinks and head out back, where they continue to flirt.

At one point, the actress strips off her beau’s white T-shirt and tosses a patterned button-down at him to change into. She then removes her cardigan, revealing a low-cut sequined top as she dances seductively for a googly-eyed Stokes. The video ends with the pair dancing together and making out.

The project was produced by Lighthouse Films in Wilmington, which got the job after connecting with Jonas Pate, a local resident who is also the co-creator, writer and director of “Outer Banks.”

The music video shot in late July, under strict COVID-19 conditions. Walker said, in set, they had a designated official in charge of ensuring protocols were being followed, nicknamed “Captain COVID.”

Masks were worn by all and social distancing standards were followed. But that didn’t mean they could make the most of the chance to produce a music video for one of the most prolific and popular music producers in the world, starring two of the hottest young stars on Netflix.

The series is set to return in 2021.

Kygo’s remix of Summer’s song is just the latest throwback pop music he’s reimagined, following popular updates to Whitney Houston’s “Higher Love” and Tina Turner’s “What’s Love Got To Do With It.”
