Of all the tracks on Where Does This Door Go?, I think "Crime" is by far my favorite. I think it's because I always end up daydreaming about partying with Mayer Hawthorne by the end of it. Or maybe it's the, "a little weed, a little red wine" part.....?
ANYWAY. Mayer Hawthorne has unveiled his video for "Crime" wherein he goes to great lengths to party it up on presumably appears to be a posh all white party on an undisclosed island . Interestingly enough, it was directed by Rashida Jones. If you have that in mind while watching the video you can see her sense of humor in little bits and pieces throughout the video, so that's pretty cool. Here explanation of the video is as follows:
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.
Also helloooo there product placement! I didn't catch which Samsung phone that was, but someone was definitely rocking a Gear 2 at the party. I guess people who dare to wear all white outside and drink red wine would be silly enough to get themselves get on board with the Samsung Galaxy / Gear 2 train?
