It’s not “Ant-Man,” but it’ll do.
The video begins with the singer and his oft-mentioned Buffalo hat wandering through a tree-filled mountain range. He stumbles across a couple of spaceship-looking thingies, shaped much like the helmets Daft Punk wears in its videos, including the collaboration with Pharrell, “Get Lucky.”
Suddenly tree leaves start falling, pretty ladies start dancing and “Gust of Wind’s” catchy beat kicks in.
It’s a quirky, engaging video from Wright (“Scott Pilgrim vs. the World”), who was recently attached to direct Paul Rudd in Marvel’s “Ant-Man,” but parted ways with the superhero studio in May over “differences in their vision of the film.”
“Gust of Wind” is the fifth single from Williams’ latest studio album, “G I R L,” which he released in March and garnered generally positive reviews. Two of the album’s other hit tracks include “Come Get It Bae” and “Happy,” which also was featured on the “Despicable Me 2” soundtrack and earned him an Oscar nomination.
