He told Billboard that Harry was a natural and that many of the silly behind-the-scenes moments shown were kept in the final music video.
Yoann said: ‘We had a few days with Harry, and he was actually very talented, and it seemed like Harry was having a lot of fun, so we kept in the music video a lot of the moments of playfulness from that.’
The between-the-scenes content comes as Harry shared that going to therapy has made him feel ‘more alive’ and has helped him open up.
He also admitted that he had misconceptions of therapy before going, explaining that he ‘thought it meant that you were broken’.

But since embarking on the journey of therapy five years ago, Harry admitted it has allowed him to face problems and his mental health head on, rather than avoiding them.
In a recent interview with Better Homes & Gardens for their June cover story, Harry shared that therapy has ‘open up rooms in himself’ that he didn’t know existed.
The As It Was singer also said that it had solved his previous problem of ’emotionally coasting’ through life.

Detailing his prior woes, Harry explained: ‘I thought it meant that you were broken, I wanted to be the one who could say I didn’t need it.
‘But I think that accepting living, being happy, hurting in the extremes, that is the most alive you can be. Losing it crying, losing it laughing—there’s no way, I don’t think, to feel more alive than that,’ he continued.
The former One Direction heartthrob also shared that lockdown gave him a chance to slow down from his hectic lifestyle, being able to process a lot of things that had happened during his rise to fame in the boyband.
He explained that both him and his therapist have attempted to get to the root of why he feels the need to be so ‘likeable’.
Pointing it back to his post X-factor days, the singer explained that he was encouraged to ‘give so much away’ in order to be liked.
Harry explained to the publication that he felt scared to say anything wrong in interviews while being in One Direction.
Sharing that their contracts had ‘cleanliness clauses’, which would dictate that they would be null and void if he did anything supposedly unsavoury – terrifying him.
