Prepare that tarred, empty socket that used to be your heart for the most saccharine joy orgy to fall this side of the Twilight Zone.
Singer Cee-Lo, Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy, Brendon Urie of the unraveling rock troupe Panic At The Disco, Travis McCoy of Gym Class heroes and neo-soul firebrand Janelle Monae have teamed together in “Open Happiness.”
The track, and music video, was commissioned to provide “the unique chance to come together and create a song to uplift and inspire.” Oh, also it’s for Coca-Cola. “Open up some happiness” indeed…
The track was produced and co-written by Butch Walker, with help of Polow De Don. It’s upbeat. It’s catchy and commercial. It’s dripping with fresh, upstate honey and rainbows and unicorn hair. It, personally, makes me violent.
Check out the campy green screenery and Urie looking like a total dork. What an eye-mess.
