Elevator scandal? What elevator scandal? That's what Beyoncé and Jay Z want you to believe since they've moved on from the event and are now promoting a new trailer for their upcoming tour.

The video, Run, was directed by Melina Matsoukas and features a star-studded lineup of famous faces including Blake Lively, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sean Penn, Emmy Rossum, Don Cheadle and Rashida Jones. The couple have a 16-city On The Run tour beginning June 25 in Miami. It will be the first time music's king and queen have toured together.

The story line of the trailer has Bey and her hubby as a pair of Bonnie-and-Clyde outlaws and lovers who are on the run. Viewers will see the power duo making deals, canoodling, participating in a heist and even hitting the criminal lineup. The almost four-minute video plays like a summer blockbuster movie.

The tagline at the end lets the audience know that this movie is "coming never" since it's only a promotional tool for their tour. They released the video on Saturday, probably hoping to distract from the consistent headlines about the elevator brawl between Jay Z and his sister-in-law, Solange Knowles.

The family wants to forget it happened, but even Saturday Night Live spoofed the headlining event by concluding that Jay Z had a spider on him. If only that were the truth.
