Jacob Hoggard Channels Bob Barker In Hedley’s ‘Better Days’ Music Video

 

Going to the laundromat can be a drag. But how much better would it be if Hedley was there giving out random prizes and injecting some fun into an otherwise boring day?

On Friday, Hedley released the 70s-inspired music video for “Better Days”—the second single off of their seventh and most recent studio album, Cageless. In the video, Hedley takes over a laundromat and turns it into a miniature version of The Price is Right, with frontman Jacob Hoggard doing his best Bob Barker impression (and doing an admirable job).

The band tries to cheer up the laundromat patrons, including a bickering couple and a bored blonde, by giving out a variety of strange items including a goldfish, lawn chairs, an alpaca and a giant cheque for $18. Fortunately the prizes keep getting bigger and better, and Hedley eventually surprises the laundromat patrons with a bike, a cruise vacation, a money blowing machine, and even a new car.

The bright, bubbly song (which dropped on August 17) echoes the band’s 2008 hit “Never Too Late” in that it’s all about remaining optimistic by looking towards the future instead of dwelling on the past. So it makes sense that Hedley created an entire video where they brighten up some strangers’ days by giving them something to laugh and talk about.

Fortunately you can listen to Hedley perform “Better Days” as well as dozens of their other singles live when they kick off their cross-Canada Cageless tour in February. Plus, you can check out the entire “Better Days” music video (and think about what you’d want included on your own random prize wheel) below.
