HAIM released their celebrity cameo-packed video for ‘My Song 5 (Remix),’ a collaboration with A$AP Ferg, on Aug. 19 and it may be the funniest video you’ll watch this year. See it here!
Set up like a Jerry Springer episode from the ’90s, HAIM‘s music video for “My Song 5 (Remix),” featuring A$AP Ferg, is outrageously funny. Saturday Night Live’s Vanessa Bayer stars in the insane new clip, which also features cameos from Kesha, A$AP Rocky, Big Sean and Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig.
HAIM’s ‘My Song 5 (Remix)’ Video
Vanessa stars as Dallas Murphy, the host of a Jerry Springer-esque daytime talk show, which features guests with peculiar dramas.
One woman admits she’s terrified of cotton balls, Kesha’s character claims she’s in love with her cat, and another woman (Ezra Koenig) tells Dallas and her boyfriend that she has a thing for mimes. The audience then goes after her boyfriend for his subsequent freak-out. (Honestly, it’s bats**t crazy.)
A$AP Ferg shows up during his verse, which is the reason for this remix, but finds out his girlfriend is cheating on him with another woman.
The video cleverly pokes fun at the ridiculous dramas these kind of shows — The Jerry Springer Show, Maury, etc. — feature.
At the end of the video, HAIM’s frontwoman, Danielle Haim, is seen heading onto the set. So what’s her dilemma? The band leaves that to the viewer’s imagination.
Vanessa Bayer & HAIM: Not Their First Time At The Rodeo Together
Interestingly enough, Vanessa also teamed up with HAIM on her Above Average web series Sound Advice. In the series, Vanessa plays the world’s least-helpful publicist. In the past, she has “advised” Drake, TV on the Radio, and Interpol. But recently, she sat down with the trio of sisters from SoCal.
Apparently, HAIM liked the comedian enough to cast her in their music video. And who wouldn’t like her? It’s Vanessa Bayer!
