The star of Dillon Francis‘s new clip is a piñata named Gerald. Those who follow Francis on Snapchat have seen Gerald before; as piñata’s go, he’s on the popular end of the spectrum – Francis recently put 50 versions of Gerald up for sale at his merch store, and the stock sold out in less than 24 hours. “GERALDS SOLDOUT SRY,” the producer wrote on Twitter. “But shirts still avail & they r trill AF trust me cuz its lit fam squad.”

For those who missed their chance to own “Gerald,” there’s still the “Candy” video. There are several jokes at play in the visual: first, old-fashioned innuendo related to tootsie rolls; second, the fact that a candy-filled animal is clip’s central character. No piñatas were harmed in the making of the video.
