Briar Nolet and Myles Erlick Define #Goals in Their Latest Video
There are few things we love more than adorable dance couples, especially when one-half of that couple is our very own 2016 Cover Model Search winner, Briar Nolet. She and her boyfriend Myles Erlick, known to fans everywhere as "Bryles" (<3), aren't just the cutest couple—they're easily the most talented (take, for example, their last sizzling collab). It's no surprise, then, that the duo's newest video is out-of-control amazing.
For starters, the location is literally jaw-dropping—I mean, ocean view, infinity pool and giant marble patio? Check, check and check. The song, a cover of Julia Michaels' "Issues," is performed beautifully by Walk off the Earth. And when these two start dancing, they truly go all out. We don't want to give it all away, so check out the full thing below!

When I sit with the soles of my feet together, my knees easily touch the floor, and most exercises to improve turnout are easy for me. But when I'm actually dancing, my turnout is terrible, especially on my standing leg. Why doesn't my flexibility translate to turnout?
The dark, deeply personal video is Yang's coming-out moment. We see Yang being rejected by his family, condemned by a preacher, and attacked by a hostile mob after attempting to express himself as a gay man. Though not a professional dancer (as we found out in "The Try Guys Try Ballet"), Yang is a gifted mover; he choreographed the project himself, and gathered a group of talented performers to bring the story to life.
