Jake Miller Works at a Supermarket in ‘Dazed and Confused’ Video
Jake Miller dropped his music video for the track "Dazed and Confused" today, and it's everything you would expect from a guy in his early 20s.
The video starts out with Jake working as a cashier at a grocery store. A beautiful woman is next in his checkout lane, causing him to lose focus the way we would lose focus if Harry Styles were to come through our checkout lane. The barcode for some miscellaneous item is, apparently, "broken" which causes Jake to run and grab a new one, demonstrating some pretty stellar customer service on his end. We hope he gets a raise. Jake then heads to the back, trips over some fallen marbles and is concussed straight into a fantasy world where his accessories are matching shades of blue.
The rest of the video is some variation of the following: A group of young people dancing in front of the supermarket in question, purposefully shaky camera movements more nauseating than the entirety of Cloverfield and a scene reminiscent of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining -- more specifically, the part where Jack is frozen in snow. Perhaps that is a generous comparison. The scene in the "Dazed and Confused' video is, naturally, more family-friendly, with Jake's seemingly disembodied head singing from the inside of a freezer -- so actually, we're not that far off base.
Travie McCoy is featured on the song and contributes a modified version of the creepiest line from the movie Dazed and Confused to the track, "Dazed and Confused." He raps, "That's what I love about college chicks / I keep getting older and they stay the same age."
We don't want to ruin the ending for you, so check out the video above to see what happens.
