See John “Mayor” in a ‘New Light’

‘Premium Content’ alert from the artist
Gotta love John Mayer. What a guy! Man drops video for his beautiful, beautiful single ‘New Light’ and this caption: I needed to make a video for New Light but nobody could agree on a budget so I went to a place downtown and made this with a company that usually does birthday and Bar Mitzvah videos.
Not buying that for one second. Though we will give him points for consistency. He put out a trailer earlier in the day with these messages flashing across a video: “Every once in a while a song comes along so powerful it requires a music video fast. Where literally anything is better than nothing. Is it good? Define ‘good.’ Is it content? You’re damn right it’s content.”
We’ll have to agree on that. But if you’re not buying into that goofiness, you’ve been blind to the stuff he’s been posting to social media.
Either way, we’re in love with the chequered blue baggy pants, those dance moves, too many John Mayers in one frame and the general madness you’ve come to expect from him.
The intentional misspelling of his name is just the start.
