I’m about a month late on posting this video, but even those it isn’t timely, I didn’t want to NOT share it. This is one of my favorite songs off of Mayer Hawthorne’s latest album and Rashida Jones even directed the music video and had this to say about it:
The video is a parody of ridiculously exclusive parties which are made nearly impossible to get to but tout themselves as ‘the party of the year.’ I liked the idea of the video starting as a sexy getting-ready video and devolving into a messy, very unsexy, unexpected trek. And the final realization is that YOU are the real party! I’m just starting to realize that about myself (which is why I stay home most nights). I am a HUGE fan of Mayer, Kendrick and of the song “Crime” and it was an honor to work with Mayer.
Here’s crossing my fingers that he’ll be touring again this year!
