"Exactly how every music video should be for any song ever."
He's John Mayer, and he's ready to be a star. The 40-year-old singer/songwriter proved he couldn't care less what others think of him these days with the release of the hysterically low-budget video for his latest lovelorn tune, "New Light." The insta-meme clip, which dropped Thursday (May 24), sees Mayer striking corny poses in front of a horribly misused green screen. Twitter's general consensus was that the parodical video was so bad, it was actually fantastic (not to mention a GIF goldmine).
"I needed to make a video for New Light but nobody could agree on a budget. (MUSIC INDUSTRY amirite?)" Mayer explained on Twitter. "So I went to a place downtown and made this with a company that usually does birthday and Bar Mitzvah videos."
