In the video for “RoxTar,” which was directed by Donlee Brussel, Kokayi’s signature style is brought to life in one crazy trip, complete with The Rock-afire Explosion, who also appeared in a recent MGMT video and will be featured in an upcoming Adam Sandler movie, and one soon-to-be-infamous leopard print Snuggie. The video takes its cues from classic rock, pop and hip-hop video archetypes, combining kitsch, attitude, and sex appeal. “The imagery reflects the tongue-in-cheek nature of the song,” explains Kokayi, who pays homage to Hype Williams and Michael Bay in the video. Old-School toy animals back Kokayi on drums bass and guitar, illuminated by stadium lights, to complete this crazy retro-futuristic-rock-and-roll-hip-hop joyride.
