Stay High

by Syd Briscoe

Brittany Howard: “Stay High” - 3 mins 46s

Alabama Shakes singer Brittany Howard has tapped Terry Crews to star in this charming video for latest single 'Stay High'. A considerable change of pace from his Old Spice outings, the actor plays an all-American working man who gets through his commute home while lip-syncing to Howard's dulcet tones.

Synchronicity is the promo's main strength, in a number of different ways, as director Kim Gehrig shows us a journey fully consumed by its soundtrack. From choreographed streetlights to other town residents getting in on the action, it feels like a scene from an incredibly laidback musical - one we wouldn't mind watching all the way through.
