John Mayer Premieres Quirky New Video For 'New Light': Watch

In a hilariously terrible use of green screen, John Mayer has released the oddly retro music video for his funky single “New Light.” Prior to the video’s release, Mayer addressed the quality of the video on Instagram, saying, “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.”

The video follows Mayer in a tattered purple hoodie and baggy pajama pants acting out alongside a random variety of different pre-set green screen filters. “I’m John Mayer and I’m ready to be a star!” The singer says before the song kicks in. John Mayer has proven that he’s clearly not interested in whether people take him seriously or not.

You can catch Mayer on tour with Dead and Company this summer.
