After teasing the 'Boasty' video for what felt like forever, it seems Wiley, Idris Elba, Stefflon Don and Sean Paul missed something out!

With one of the most unexpected collaborations of the year so far, Stefflon Don, Sean Paul and acting legend Idris Elba teamed up with the 'Godfather of Grime' Wiley for the banger that is 'Boasty'.

The song is a massive anthem and now we have an equally epic music video to go along with it - but whilst we're loving the one-shot feel of these visuals there's something important missing...Wiley!

With a history of not appearing in his own music videos, it appears that Grime legend Wiley has reinforced that reputation once more and is the only artist on the track not to appear in the video.

Instead of the East London star appearing in the video he's been replaced by a young actor who absolutely nails his performance in the role of Wiley.

Wiley can be heard talking on the phone and telling the youngster that he's "gonna be late" before being told to "be quiet" by his young replacement and not to bother showing up at all.

Set to be one of the big songs of the year, the video for 'Boasty' is an instant success and we're gonna be watching this one on repeat for a while!
