You knew an "Old Town Road" video was coming down the, uh, road, but just when you think you're in for some Buster Scruggs Wild West fun, things hit another gear via a time travel gag that takes us to the present day. It's a fun ride, so saddle up with Lil Nas X, Billy Ray Cyrus, Chris Rock, Vince Staples and other notables in this visual ode to the Wild West Coast.
"Sick Boy" finds the Chainsmokers remaking themselves into something closer to an electronic rock band than the EDM/pop for which they're known. Things start in a pretty standard performance configuration, but lighting cues and scanning X-ray effects reveal the set-up to be more complex than that.
A video that captures the chaos of our time, starting with online clips of racism, violence and other awfulness, and then transitioning to middle-section with audio of Mike Tyson, and then a defiant dance performance.
A timely reminder that "Love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love, cannot be killed or swept aside," and can be found right in front of you, wherever you are, be you John Legend and Chrissy Teigen at home with their baby, or in Iraq, Orlando, Standing Rock, or the Dominican Republic.
