If you’ve ever wondered what musicians KAMI, Vic Mensa and Joey Purp do when they hang out together, there’s a good chance it involves marathoning John Hughes’ films. The Chicago natives grew up at the epicenter of ’80s teen films, with Sixteen Candles, Risky Business, and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off all shot in Chi-town. With KAMI’s new video “Home Movies,” director Andre Muir is paying homage to the golden era of nerdy guys getting the hot girl.
The Savemoney crew, including Mensa, Purp and producer Knox Fortune, all appear in KAMI’s latest music video, performing in a fictional diner band. The band provides a backing track for a lonely teenage waitress who dreams of attending prom. The 80s inspired video has it all—longing, romance, a sleeveless acetate dress, a dance routine and the girl getting the guy in the end. Molly Ringwald would love this video.
In true big screen fashion, the trio even released a movie poster for the music video, featuring actor Kelly Bode, who stars in “Home Movies.”
