Ryan Hemsworth One For Me Tinashe

Our Canadian bae Ryan Hemsworth just released the official video for the track “One for Me” featuring R&B singer Tinashe, from his debut album of late last year Guilt Trips on Last Gang Records.

The video, directed by Martin C. Pariseau, attempts to be “the most boring music video of 2014” by showing the seemingly lonely, everyday nerd-life of a traveling DJ, yet the idea of rollin’ in a Lambo through Montréal and burnin’ Macbook Pros on helipads is a bit far-fetched from normal.

Even so, who could complain about watching Ryan do almost nothing for 3 minutes and 41 seconds… Watch the video for “One For Me” here and read what our boy and the director Pariseau have to say about it below.

Hemsworth:

Martin approached me about making “the most boring video for 2014.” At this point in my life, I realized it would be a great thing to do because the Super Cool DJ lifestyle is one associated with being the life of the party and never having a dull moment. The truth is that it’s mostly made up of moments waiting around and hanging out by yourself. The track itself is already about walking through the middle of a crowd feeling alone. So driving around Montreal in a Lamborghini yawning felt like a good way of showing how awesome and equally solitary it can get sometimes.

Pariseau:

I’ve been looking to make the most boring video possible for a while now. I then approached Ryan and he talked to me about his life on tour, being a cool DJ, having fans and being more of a geek then a rock star. We were definitely heading in the same direction, so a week later, without any preparation, we shot the damn thing. It was the most relaxed video set I’ve been on yet, we basically shot what we wanted when we wanted and also played Diddy Kong Racing and Pokemon Snap.
