Haim releases cameo-packed video for 'My Song 5'

Haim releases a cameo-packed video for 'My Song 5'

It's hard to imagine many musicians who wouldn't want to hang out with the Haim sisters. So it's not surprise that their new video for "My Song 5" features a huge roster of indie, hip-hop and pop guest appearances.

The song is one of the darker, more electronics-driven cuts from their smash debut "Days Are Gone" (it also features A$AP Ferg as a guest).

In the clip the single, directed by Dugan O'Neal, the band swings by a fictional rowdy talk show hosted by "SNL's" Vanessa Bayer. The lighting, the haircuts and pastel-hued trashiness will bring back fond memories for anyone who ever spent a long day home sick from school in front of the TV in the late '90s.

But the real fun is in spotting all the familiar musical faces in the crowd. Among them: Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig, Kesha, rapper Big Sean, electro-pop artist Grimes, Haim's producer Ariel Rechtshaid, and even Mom and Pop Haim. 

Haim is riding high on the strength of a lauded Coachella appearance and two recent sold-out Wiltern shows. They will return to L.A. as a top-billed act at this weekend's FYF Fest near downtown.
