By Amanda Wicks

There’s no end to the way artists have reimagined music videos in an age where technology allows viewers to interact with them like never before. French electronic duo Cassius premiered their new music video for “The Missing,” which allows viewers to change the actors as many times as they want.

In the video, available at Cassius’ website, viewers can click on the face of each actor and swap them out for someone else, creating innumerable couples as a result. No matter what couple you prefer, the video’s premise remains the same: a steamy make out session that celebrates young love in the summer. A lone camera roams around a neon-colored soundstage, tracking the actors as they get close in numerous situations like on the stairs or in a bus.

OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder provides the vocals for the first single off their upcoming album Ibifornia. “Baby, I’m not the type that goes to extremes/ You and me can re-write the scene/ We can go missing, missing, missing,” Tedder sings. The upbeat track feels part-disco and part-80s pop fun.

Tedder isn’t the only vocalist who contributed to Cassius’ new album. Pharrell Williams, Cat Power and Beastie Boys’ Mike D all appear on tracks, according to Rolling Stone. Ibifornia will be available August 26.
