In all honesty, I haven’t truly loved a track by Kings of Leon since their “Sex on Fire” and “Use Somebody” hey day. Is their latest, “Beautiful War,” as great as those previous smashes? To put it simply… no. Why, the post then? I love me some Garrett Hedlund and he plays a cowboy in the video. The look really works for him. I’m probably the only one who sat through Country Strong twice. Boy, did he look fine in that hot mess.
The latest visual off Mechanical Bull appropriately enough takes place at a prison rodeo. After a violent altercation, Garrett finds himself incarcerated. The vision of him handcuffed, riding bronco and super scruffy are definitely spank material 😉 The only thing that would’ve made this clip better is if Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill was taking an Oz-like shower with Hedlund.
Check out the video below. In all fairness, it’s more like a short film with its gripping narrative and cinematography.
