New Video: Mayer Hawthorne Feat. Kendrick Lamar ‘Crime’

Music

Despite the lack of Kendrick Lamar’s full presence, Mayer Harthonre delivers a hilarious video with the help of actress, Rashida Jones. In the visuals for “Crime,” the singer must find his way to an ultra exclusive party to meet the apple of his eye.

Rashida Jones (The director):

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.
