Old Dominion Pay Tribute to ‘Back to the Future’ in ‘Break Up With Him’ Video [Exclusive Preview]
Old Dominion's "Break Up With Him" video is coming soon, and it promises to be a fun one, as band will pay tribute to Back to the Future. They're going back in time with their wardrobe — and with the original DeLorean — to celebrate 30th anniversary of the classic flick.
The full "Break Up With Him" video is set to drop on Wednesday (July 8), but the teaser is more than enough to whet your appetite until then. Old Dominion's Matthew Ramsey seems particularly excited about the upcoming release.
“The concept of the video for ‘Break Up with Him’ is based around the movie Back to the Future," he explains. "It’s this crazy reconstruction of all our favorite scenes. We’re constantly on the bus talking about the movie. We’re all huge fans, so we wanted to do something different and not just kind of interpret the song."
"This is a way that we could do it because it’s got a girl and it’s got a bully," Ramsey adds. "The girl is with the bully and the main character wants to get his girl. It works with the song and it allows us to relive our childhood with a movie we grew up loving.”
The teaser clip shows Ramsey suiting up in a blue bubble vest and denim jacket, also rocking some gray throwback high-top sneakers. The light-up shoes put a smile on the vocalist's face — he's grinning from ear to ear! Can't say we blame him, because the shoes and the premise of the "Break Up With Him" video are pretty awesome. Check out the rad visual teaser above!
