Please don’t forget about the best video of the year

Vogue’s video of Céline Dion in Paris is iconic.

Like any human with Wi-Fi, I can easily tumble into a deep YouTube spiral. I can't even imagine the total number of videos I've watched this year, but there's one I keep coming back to over and over again. It's this short, cinematic clip of Céline Dion that was shot by Vogue. I have a strong affinity for the legendary singer and have enjoyed watching her turn into a fashion meme of 2017. In this video, however, she is in a category far beyond viral ephemera — it's practically high art. Céline dances, poses, and chirps all around Paris in full couture. I scream every time she grabs the french fry off the plate. My only complaint about the 1:57 clip is that it wasn't a teaser for a multi-hour version. Vogue, please release a director's cut in 2018.
