Video for “Don’t Look Back” Insert Run the Jewels Into George A. Romero’s ‘Night of the Living Dead’ Alongside Norman Reedus and Greg Nicotero!

Killer Mike & El-P are caught in the Night of the Living Dead, in this terrifyingly un-dead music video for Run the Jewels’ “Never Look Back”, directed by John Hillcoat (The Road, The Proposition; music videos for Nick Cave, Massive Attack, Depeche Mode).

An homage to George Romero’s classic film and perennial midnight movie favorite Night of the Living Dead, this re-telling drops RTJs in the film’s narrative, as footage of them navigating a burgeoning zombie outbreak is seamlessly intercut with scenes from the 1968 film.

As a ragtag group of survivors hole up in a dilapidated house, staving off their imminent demise by watching Run the Jewels performing the song live from the future on an old black and white television set, Killer Mike & El-P unwittingly stumble into their own nightmare.

Pointing to the enduring legacy of the original film, the video’s cast includes cameos from “The Walking Dead’s” Norman Reedus and Day of the Dead’s Greg Nicotero, and was shot on location in Atlanta, GA.
