John Mayer’s “New Light” Music Video Is A Green Screen Dream Come True

It’s so bad that it’s good.

Joh Mayer’s new music video is, uh, something else. Dad dancing, questionable fashion and intentionally bad special effects, the singer/songwriter visionary’s “New Light” video is a low-budget delight.

The nearly 4 minutes clip, which John himself labeled “Premium Content!”, is basically just him in front of a green screen dancing casually and dressed tragically. The artist explained himself on Twitter, writing, “I needed to make a video for New Light but nobody could agree on a budget. (MUSIC INDUSTRY amirite?) So I went to a place downtown and made this with a company that usually does birthday and Bar Mitzvah videos.”

Against all odds, the very GIF-able video is everything and more we didn’t know we needed. Zebras, the pyramids, fireworks, a barn—what more could we ask for? Click through our photo gallery above to see the best reactions to John Mayer’s New Light music video.
