The theme of Flying Lotus‘ upcoming album You’re Dead! is right there in the title, so it’s fitting that the just-released music video for “Never Catch Me,” featuring Kendrick Lamar, is set at a funeral. What’s surprising, however, is that a seemingly sad video turns instantly joyful when the two late children — a boy and a girl — bound out of their caskets at the front of the church and dance gleefully down the aisle.
The mourners can’t see the children as they dance right out of the church and out onto a blacktop, but a group of other kids chases after them as they hop in a hearse and drive away. Morbid, yes, but the choreography and talented young dancers lift this video out of sadness.
Watch for yourself below:
You’re Dead! is set to be released on Tuesday.
