With a full-throttle police chase, a ton of stolen cars, a high and rising body count and a cameo from a brand new Tesla vehicle, Travis Scott‘s short film with his JACKBOYS collective makes for one ambitious, cinematic debut.
On Friday (Dec. 27), the architect of Astroworld brought us into his new universe with Cactus Jack at the helm. “JACKBOYS” clocks in at just under nine minutes, and features Sheck Wes, Don Toliver, and artist and DJ Chase B, all artists off Scott’s Cactus Jack Records. The film begins with Scott hanging with a mysterious woman in a bar bathed in the glow of neon and arcade game screens. Things escalate when the camera cuts to him and his companion mid-police chase, and even more so later, when JACKBOYS start to steal cars from unsuspecting drivers — and leave a trail of bodies in their wake.
In the final frames of the video, Scott strolls up to a Cybertruck — the latest of Elon Musk’s futuristic Tesla rides — and a Tesla Cyberquad ATV. (Perhaps the collaboration came up in conversation at the Kardashians’ annual Christmas party, as both Scott and Musk were in attendance.)
JACKBOYS cut “GANG GANG” got the breakout treatment as well: the track is briefly featured in “JACKBOYS,” but the full song is fleshed out into a stand-alone video on the same lot featuring the Cybertruck and Scott driving laps on the Cybersquad.
