The impact of "Stranger Things" on popular culture is undeniable. From various late-night skits to references in network TV shows, the '80s-inspired, sci-fi drama has swept the globe. Now, country singer Brad Paisley tips his hat to the phenomenon in his new visual for "Last Time for Everything," in which he cites pivotal plot points like Will riding his bicycle down the block.
Paisley also pays homages to such films as Back to the Future and Ghostbusters and includes various "ancient" artifacts like the Sony Walkman and handlebar bicycles. He also peppers in real footage from his life including high school graduation and prom. In the video's final frames, actor David Hasselhoff, known for his work on the hit '80s-90s TV show "Bay Watch" and the classic Knight Rider film, makes a cameo when he's searching for his car. Instead, Paisley offers up his bicycle. "Does this bike talk?" Hasselhoff asks. "Yeah..." Paisley says, a bit confused.
"Last Time for Everything" is the second official single from Paisley's upcoming album Love and War, out April 21 and follows the No. 1 lead-in "Today."
The new video follows the recent release of the cheeky "Selfie#theinternetisforever" video, in which Paisley curated selfies from his fans.
Paisley has not discussed his new record too much, other than to reveal the inspiration behind its title. “There is a woman, a soldier, serving who, while I am feverishly trying to get this record done. She’s using the first single ['Today'] off of it for the exact purpose I recorded that song, which is [to] ‘hang on to those memories that get you through the rough times,’” he previously shared. "I wrote her back and said that ‘as she’s writing the email, I’m mixing the album, and I turned it into my record label today and it’s called ‘Love and War,’ serendipitously, it seems you have reminded me why I do what I do, as well.’ I’m gonna work out meeting her somewhere out there when she gets back. I hope she stays safe.”
