Whether it’s an original short film, rich black & white footage for a sensuous scent advertisement, or a high-tech motorcycle shoot for a new fashion line, video is the sexiest way to get a message to an audience. PROVOKR has picked the five most alluring videos from the internet this year. Be sure to look for the winner of the PROVOKR Awards Sexiest Video 2017 in early January 2018.

First up is reality star Kylie Jenner’s ridiculously sexy fashion film, Sheershot for V Magazine. Under the creative direction of Nick Knight, along with his number 2, photographer Britt Lloyd, they have created one of the most outrageously hot videos of the year. Set to Travis Scott’s ‘Goosebumps’ ft Kendrick Lamar, watching this gave us goosebumps.

Armani‘s manly scent, Acqua di Gió requires not one, but two strong yet sensitive faces for its brand. To capture man and nature in the raw, they found kiteboader, Tom Court, and speed skater Joey Manita and let them do what they do best.

This three-minute ad for the charitable initiative, Dior Love Chain, features famously fashionable faces like Natalie Portman, Johnny Depp, Carine Roitfeld, and Robert Pattinson, answering the question: “And you, what would you do for love?” It’s a romantic query everyone has a sincere, heartfelt, and very different, answer for.

As for the charity, for each post put online, Dior is donating $1 to the WE Schools program in Kenya, which aims to give education to young girls there. Brand ambassador Natalie Portman is backing the initiative.

Model Mica Arganaraz and style icon/actress Charlotte Gainsbourg shimmy and sparkle in this fascinating ad for YSL’s Winter 17 line.

Another Nick Knight video—it seems the iconic photographer can do no wrong with his gorgeous videos—shows a woman on a motorcycle driving through the streets of London. The technobeat-heavy song “Motorcykel” is the soundtrack to her trip. The video may not be overt but the possibilities of the machine, the woman, and the night, makes for an exciting ride.
