Being in a band is sophisticated. When you initiate out, you may per chance presumably per chance not decide your self too seriously or you’d not be versatile enough to deal with the inevitable challenges. And in case you attain derive enormous — which fair about by no system happens — you will must be taken seriously, however in the event you are too severe, you menace alienating folk. That is why Imagine Dragons‘s goofy as hell original video for “Prepare You” is such a feat. Or not it’s relentlessly self-ribbing, however it furthermore showcases the band doing what they attain on the tip of their sport.
It furthermore has major assist from two extraordinarily humorous folk: Steal McElhenney and Kaitlin Olson from Or not it’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. That on my own is enough to puncture the veneer of a Severe Rock Band, however Imagine Dragons shuffle extra, with band chief Dan Reynolds stripping off his shirt and making an fool of himself on a pair of occasions. Successfully done, Dan!
McElhenney, who is conscious of a thing or two about performing shirtless dances onstage, commits to this video in a system it be crucial to treasure, however Olson can even be the accurate MVP for the system she gets to unruffled down and leer all of it (rather then one brief, unbelievable second that is successfully an Easter egg). If that wasn’t enough, the band dunks on itself by invoking their fellow Las Vegas enviornment champs The Killers in a in actuality humorous bit on the tip of the clip.
“Prepare You” — and its extraordinarily successfully-done video from Matt Eastin — comes sooner than Imagine Dragons’s coming near fifth studio album, furthermore inform to encompass “Cutthroat,” a tune that got right here out of Reynolds’s experiences with ayahuasca. “Prepare You” is the at ease side of “Cutthroat”‘s fury, and Reynolds currently informed Rolling Stone it be one of the few treasure songs the band has, impressed by him reuniting alongside with his partner, Aja.
“‘Prepare You’ is ready loyalty,” he informed the journal. “Or not it’s impressed by the Seaside Boys, which I grew up on, and it turned into as soon as a in point of fact mischievous, relaxing tune.”
As a long way as husband-and-partner reunions shuffle, the “Prepare You” video furthermore permits McElhenney and Olson, who’ve been married for 13 years, to own a night out collectively and leer some dwell song. What a dream. See it above.
