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.
