We’ve all been there: You see a pretty girl at a sidewalk café, but before you can muster up the nerve to give her your digits, she abruptly takes off, which then leads you to totally ignore some friends of yours, nearly get run over by a blue haired grandmother while jaywalking, and finally commandeer a tasty Mustang so you can chase the girl down. Wait, that’s never happened to you? Then your name must not be Chris Daughtry.
Daughtry’s new music video for “Outta My Head”, the third single off the Breaking The Spell LP, is a real hoot. Directed with verve by Shane C. Drake, the video’s got something for everyone: a hot babe, a renegade hero (Daughtry, duh!), a car chase through the freeways and sidestreets of Los Angeles, a healthy dose of intrigue, a reminder that chivalry is not dead, and even a surprise plot twist! It’s one part “Bittersweet Symphony”, one part Drive, and all parts awesome.
If you liked this video but wish you could watch it in high-definition on your flatscreen while sitting on your couch, you’re in luck: Tune into this weekend’s Top 20 Video Countdown to catch the television premiere of Daughtry’s “Outta My Head” video.
