Cat Velez - 5th Jan 2016

Skrillex has paired with director Andrew Donoho to create something a little different from his intense EDM visuals. It's a softened, whimsical remix of his track Stranger, now with a beautiful video exploring the excitement of youth – and all done for a good cause.

The video was released on Christmas Day as an opportunity to garner support for charities such as like Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and follows a group of young people, losely helmed by Skrillex himself, banded together in a junkyard looking to have a good time. And they do just that, with a playful day of food fights, racing, and exploding cars, topped off with the magic of sparklers and fire spinning when night falls. 

Shot in Donoho's native Georgia, where he made the videos for Raury that first got him noticed, Skrillex told HypeBeast: "I approached Andrew Donoho because I knew he was really good at doing run-and-gun lifestyle videos. In a lot of his old videos he never even used actors, he likes to stay away from them. He’s really good at creating scenarios with real people, and that was the whole sentiment behind the video."
