The Haim sisters have stepped out of their video comfort zone and have stepped in to a 90’s talk show scene in their new video, “My Song 5″  featuring A$AP Ferg. The star studded video includes the SNL star Vanessa Bayer who plays the talk show host Dallas Murphey. As the video continues, Dallas tries to resolve some of her guest problems such as the fear of cotton balls, Keiysha’s love with her cat Mr. boots, and bassist Este comes clean to her boyfriend about her secret infatuation with mimes. Finally as A$AP Ferg makes his way to the stage, he finds out that his girlfriend is leaving him for woman. unlike the rest of the other cases A$AP and the girls put their differences aside and leave together.
This is far leap from their usual videos but it a delightful comical change.
