As the lead single off the Trolls World Tour soundtrack, the video stars Anna Kendrick dragging around her house in pajamas and avoiding .Paak and JT's antics at every turn.
In one scene, .Paak enthusiastically Milly Rocks inside of a refrigerator. In another, JT spins around like the Tasmanian Devil.
Directed by Calmatic, the Los Angeles-born filmmaker behind the videos for Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" as well as .Paak's "Bubblin," Kendrick doesn't appear to be in the party mood even with ample free time on her hands. "Today you have NOTHING to do" and "Forecast is heavy rain forever" are two of the notifications that pop up on her phone at the beginning.
But as the video progresses, Kendrick lightens up and gets down at a stay-at-home dance party while .Paak and Timberlake excitedly perform for her in her living room.
Timberlake, the voice behind Branch in Trolls World Tour, noted in a tweet that this video was filmed "pre-social distancing," but the in-home setting aged well.
Kendrick, who voices Poppy, the movie's pink-haired main character, last appeared in a music video in 2013 with "Cups (Pitch Perfect’s 'When I’m Gone')."
SZA, Kelly Clarkson, George Clinton, HAIM, Mary J. Blige and James Corden are some of the other notable artists featured on the 20-song Trolls World Tour soundtrack.
