Cage The Elephant make roller skating look badass and carefree in their new music video for “Take It Or Leave It”. I recently roller-skated for the first time in years and it’s not nearly as easy breezy as it looks. Much respect to everyone who manages to look graceful on those disco wheels.
Speaking of graceful, did you notice that one of those skater girls is Juliette Lewis?
Lewis and Cage The Elephant actually go way back (ten years), so the actress/singer agreed to make a cameo in the video. She didn’t need to act the part though, Lewis is a pro rollerskater and has even won championships!
The retro vibe, the choreography, the outfits, everything about this video is pure perfection.
“Take It or Leave It” is off Cage The Elephant’s awesome album Melophobia.
