Brad Paisley Goes Back to the ’80s for ‘Last Time for Everything’ Music Video
Brad Paisley has shared an awesomely ’80s music video for his latest single, “Last Time for Everything.” Click play above to watch the nostalgic and hilarious clip, which the singer debuted via Facebook on Friday (April 7).
Co-written by Paisley with Smith Ahnquist, Brent Anderson, Chris DuBois and Mike Ryan, “Last Time for Everything” finds the country singer reminiscing about the past and how, sometimes, we don’t even realize that something is happening for the last time until it’s already over. Of course, there are some things that we’re happy to see run their course — like the terrible mullets of our youth (which Paisley proudly sports throughout this music video) — but others, such as the bittersweet feeling of senior prom or the last high school football game, are a bit harder to accept.
Paisley covers all of those mixed emotions in his “Last Time for Everything” music video, which he says was a “blast to film.” The whole clip is a testament to his ’80s youth, interspersing real-life home videos of the singer’s high school football games and graduation with hilarious references to practically every cultural icon of the decade.
There’s the car from Knight Rider, and the original Ghostbusters-mobile. There’s a “No Girls Allowed” tree fort, and bike-riding that The Goonies would be proud of. There’s cheesy ’80s special effects, and grainy Super-8 footage, and even a cameo from one of the decade’s greatest icons … but you’ll have to watch to find out who! Down to Paisley’s red vest in honor of Back to the Future‘s Marty McFly, “Last Time for Everything” fights hard to bring back everything we thought we saw for the last time.
“Last Time for Everything” is the second single off of Paisley’s forthcoming album, Love and War; it follows the record’s first single, “Today.” The country star’s 11th studio album, Love and War will be released on April 21.
