CHECK OUT THE LATEST
Thirty Seconds To Mars have released the latest video offering for the new single City Of Angels, borne of their current album Love, Lust, Faith + Dreams. Say what you will about the band but they certainly don’t do things by halves, tagging an absolutely massive cast of guest appearances for the clip, bringing in stories of both success and failure from fair Los Angeles.
The song itself takes a backseat to the video feature: in fact, it’s probably been stored somewhere in the boot to make room for all the celebrity cameos. In a ‘talking heads’ interview manner, people ranging from the who’s who of Hollywood down to homeless vagrants all share their experiences and thoughts on the city they call home.
You’ll notice testimonies are provided by extreme dude Shaun White, porn star Heather Levinger A.K.A Brandy Aniston, House star Olivia Wilde, post-celebrity breakdown participant Lindsay Lohan, Natural Born Killers actor Juliette Lewis, former Disney girl Selena Gomez, basketball player Steve Nash, Michael Jackson
MICHAEL JACKSON HOLY CO-..oh wait, not Michael Jackson.
But certainly Ashley Olsen and the big dawg himself, Kanye ‘Motherf’in’ West. LOL Corey Feldman, just stop already. Super hunk James Franco? Please continue.
The video was directed by main man Jared Leto, who features in the clip alongside his two bandmates, all adding their personal stories to the clip’s tapestry.
