Run the Jewels have shared a fantastical visual for their song, “Walking in the Snow.”
In the stop-motion video, directed by Chris Hopewell, the duo appear as action figures living in a toy city controlled by the oppressive forces of an icy king and his warriors. El-P and Killer Mike team up with a group of rebels to overthrow the snowy regime and lead the toys to freedom.
“Everyone was very aware of the gravity of the subject matter and RTJ didn’t want to be too obvious or on the nail with the visuals, so we went with an ’80s style fantasy look with evil snow warriors and their icy king oppressing the bedroom toys,” Hopewell said in a statement.
“It was great to be involved with a project with a positive vibe to end a pretty fucked up year,” he added. “Big thanks to the RTJ crew for their truth and for letting us work with their amazing music once again.”
