Here’s a script straight out of The Monkees: Lightspeed Champion, nee Devonte Hynes, is just trying to drum with the most intense face imaginable, despite multiplying versions of himself and a psychedelic blueberry backdrop torn from the first Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie (shout to Gene Wilder). He’s doing pretty well, until a chorus of tiny dancing women, resplendently mod in hotpants, causes him great distraction. Which, you know, isn’t that the way? On another note, we wish Hynes a speedy recovery from his recent surgery, and many more videos in which bubblegummy images like this are tied to uplifting lyrics like Kill me, kill me won’t you kill me.
