Back in July, Mayer Harthorne and Jake One reconnected to release a third album under their funkdafied Tuxedo outfit.

Now, with the album still causing random dance-offs in various locations, the singer-producer duo are back with a video for “Toast 2 Us” with Benny Sings, bringing classic album covers to life in the process.

“‘Toast 2 Us’ is the first slow jam we’ve released as a single so we wanted to do something different for the visual,” Tuxedo told Complex. “Re-enacting a bunch of classic album covers seemed like a good idea. Benny Sings shot his scene in a Super 8 equivalent pool in Amsterdam.”

Directed and edited by Ross Harris, the video finds Mayer and Jake recreating Run-DMC’s King of Rock, Outkast’s Stankonia, Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here, Elvis Costello’s This Year’s Model, Public Enemy’s It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, and more.
