Talk about a song tailor-made for summer: Zac Brown Band’s “Jump Right In” is all about kicking back, cutting loose, and maybe getting a little crazy. And the video for the song takes the concept one step further.
It’s got white sand, blue water and tiki bars, along with plenty of drumming and dancing–but it also involves such antics as hatchet tossing, jet pack flights, and human catapulting. While it’s not exactly Jackass, the idea of being shot out over the water by catapult (with or without beer in hand) will certainly give the saner minds among us pause.
There’s actually a story within the video, involving a character named Flody Boatwood and his musical partner Danny. The band released a behind-the-scenes video that gives a bit more background. It also shows what a great crew of artists and supporters Zac and the band have gathered around them.
“Jump Right In” is the current single from the ZBB’s 2012 album Uncaged.
The band is on tour this summer in the U.S. and the U.K.
