Haim nabs all of the best cameos for "My Song 5" video
If you need proof that Haim is one of the most loved bands in the business right now, look no further than their brand-new video. The '90s throwback music video for their newest single, "My Song 5," is littered with cameos from some seriously awesome people. Everyone, from the Haim sisters' parents, to a Vampire Weekend member, makes an appearance. We're not there, though. We weren't invited.
We'd be salty about our lack of invite if it weren't for the fact that "My Song 5" and its connected music video has us entirely distracted and amused. The dark and sexy tone in the song is set against "footage" of a Springer-esque talk show hosted by SNL's Vanessa Bayer. With tons of trashy '90s fashion and pastel colors, the video feels like the ultimate throwback.
It also looks like it was a blast to shoot. With so many celebrity cameos, Haim had to feel like they were right in the middle of a seriously awesome Hollywood party. Bayer, serving as talk show host, isn't the only celeb to grace the stage. Her first "guest" is none other than Artemis Pebdani, from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, playing a girl afraid of cotton balls. Later on in the video, Kesha makes an appearance as a guest. Among the familiar faces that pop up in the video, you can also catch Grimes, Ariel Rechtshaid, Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig, Big Sean and even the Haim sisters' parental units.
Then, of course, there's also a rapped breakdown starring A$AP Ferg as a scorned lover, which of course, ties in perfectly with the song. None of the Haim sisters — Alaina, Danielle and Este — make it to the stage. Instead, we see them getting ready backstage. As the song ends, though, we watch as it's Haim's time to unleash the drama on that tiny stage... I wonder who could have done those girls so wrong.
