In a Twilight Zone-like alternate universe where a pop artist needs Rita Ora’s help to happen — otherwise known as Europe — Charli XCX snagged the “I Will Never Let You Down” singer for a remix of “Doing It” to promote the recently-postponed U.K. release of Sucker. (The excellent album is already out in the U.S.)

Today we’re treated to the premiere of its video, which is basically the closest thing we’ve gotten to that “Telephone” sequel Lady Gaga promised. Western-inspired outfits? Check. Getaway car? Check. Payphone? Check. In the colorful clip, Charli sips Mai Tais and hangs out with a very old man by the pool — something Charli actually fantasized about doing when TIME hung out with her last September at a “trashy stripper hotel” in Florida — before real strippers show up and join the slumber party. Dreams do come true after all!

Watch the clip, above, and pay close attention to the sexy, almost Pink Power Ranger-like cowboy outfit Charli rocks, which someone definitely needs to turn into a Halloween costume. You’ve got eight months to do it — and hey, Sucker might be out in the U.K. by then. (Kidding.)
