Ansel Elgort, AKA DJ Ansolo, has just dropped a music video for his new track ‘Thief’, and it’s…something.

Ansel Elgort, 22, is trying. He really is.

Watch it above!
The video features DJ Ansel’s girlfriend Violetta Komyshan and is directed by his brother Warren Elgort, and Ansel has happily promoted the single using his abs as a billboard:
