Sneak Peek: Lenny Kravitz Leads 1970s “Run For Your Money” House Band In “Stand” Video

|

Lenny Kravitz flexes his acting muscles (perhaps in preparation for his role as Cinna in The Hunger Games) in the new video for “Stand,” which premieres Thursday at 12 p.m. ET on VH1. In the sneak peak above, he appears as the host of a Let’s Make a Deal homage called “Run for Your Money,” as well as both the drummer and the vocalist of the Run for Your Money Band. The clip recalls the eight AndrĂ© 3000s of The Love Below in “Hey Ya”, but unlike that video, and other homages to the Beatles‘ American television debut on The Ed Sullivan Show (like Nirvana‘s “Lithium”), this clip’s aesthetic is gonzo-seventies, not mod-sixties. That’s enough to make us very excited to see the rest of the video.

While we wait for tomorrow’s premiere, we’re going to listen to the song thanks to the lyric video embedded below, and try to decide which costumed contestant is our favorite. (Right now we’re going with American flag-night sky motorcycle-helmet dude in the bottom right, but there are so many good options.)
