HAPPYSAD MUSIC VIDEO TREATMENTS

"REAPER"

The video opens with a view of pretty boy pinata. it's morning. The sky is blue. the scenery is extremely cheery

he's walking down a suburban street waving at neighbors. (walking his pinata dog? watering plastic plants?)

The next scene opens with a received text that reads "party at 8?" and dude bro pinata is introduced.

dude bro pinata is sitting on a couch vaping looking at his phone. his room is messy. he's wearing sunglasses indoors. there's blurred out posters on the wall suggesting it's porn. and video games on the tv screen. he replies to the text and walks out the door.

douche bag pinata is introduced through bench pressing/weight lifting at a gym. (this pinata has shoulder pads making him look buff). he's wearing a sweatband. and he's hitting on hot chicks. he looks at his phone and it says "7:45pm" and leaves the gym.

cut to performance scene

dude bro pinata walks into a crappy liquor store. it's sunset. the sky is orange and red. pinata grabs a case of pabst blue ribbon implying the party is a byob party.

all three pinatas are in the drinkin' bros vehicle. their paper mache hair is slow-motion blowing in the wind. the odometer is at 80mph.  eliza grace song abruptly stops and car radio is playing USHER. 

pinatas arrive at front door. holding cases of beer. acting animated and excited to be there. door opens and two little girls are seen. both with baseball bats. also excited.

pinatas drop cases of beer in surprise as one of the little girls comes at one of the pinatas with a baseball bat. and kills him in the doorway.

video switches to clips of out of context natural explosions, paint balloons bursting and rainbow sprinkles and candy being thrown symbolizing the pinatas death.

the two other pinatas run through the house in slow motion. the color scheme is rainbow. one of the little girls corners a pinata and a front view is of her coming at the camera with a bat. 

and once again clips of out of context explosions are shown to symbolize the death of a pinata.

the last pinata alive is seen tripping over something and gets ambushed by the two little girls. they kick and hit the pinata with a bat and beat him up while smiling and laughing until previous out of context explosions are seen. (symbolizing a g rated death)

in the final scene, the pinatas wake up in "heaven". a pinata spa. they have cucumbers over their eyes, are getting pedicures and are being served mimosas BY HUMANS. the scene is edited in soft focus. and large kitschy clouds are hanging from string along with fog. scene ends with all pinatas coming together, with a close up of a highfive between the three.

lyrics

VERSE 1

Keep my seat warm for the day that I return

Still wiping crud out of my eyes

Too early to say goodbye

Sleeping harder ever day it gets

More irrational dreaming

Strange as it seems

Time flies

Too early to say goodbye

 

PRE CHORUS

Black eyes, and pink hair

And a good first impression

It’s all happy lies

Plus a million questions, i know

A million questions, i know

 

CHORUS 1

I cut off my sleeves

Turned my entire life black

Shut off the lights

And never looked back

Grim reaper

 

VERSE

Woke up somewhere else i’m lost again

I’m still wiping

mushrooms

from my eyes

One room down from cloud 9

Skeletons in my closet started

Paying rent to stay

Time flies

To early to say goodbye

 

PRE CHORUS

Those eyes, I know them

It’s a good first impression

It’s all happy lies

Plus a million questions

 

CHORUS 2

I cut off my sleeves

Turned my entire life black

Shut off the lights

And never looked back

Grim reaper

Grim reaper

I’m cheering you on from the passenger seat

Blue lights on behind your body and me

Drunk driver

Grim reaper

 

BRIDGE

Keep my seat warm for the day I return

Hearing my voice would only make you feel worse

Grim reaper

Grim reaper

 

CHORUS

I cut off my sleeves

Turned my entire life black

Shut off the lights

And never looked back

Grim reaper

Grim reaper

I’m cheering you on from the passenger seat

Blue lights on behind your body and me

Drunk driver

Grim reaper
