Encompassing menial tasks from fetching coffee to setting up equipment to cleaning up after talent, the job of a production assistant is sometimes thankless and often grueling.
While this plebe lifestyle is far outside the reality of superstars Diplo and Joji, the duo play the PA part in the video for their new collaborative single, “Daylight.”
In the clip, the guys work behind the scenes on a music video shoot for an elderly (and seemingly “I Want It That Way” era Backstreet Boys-inspired) boy band. The pair are tormented by a very tanned, waxed and demanding director before breaking into the wardrobe department and wreaking an innocent sort of havoc on the set.
“Daylight” is the latest single from Joji’s forthcoming LP Nectar, due out on September 25 through 88rising, distributed by 12Tone Music.
