Old Dominion Go 'Back to the Future' For 'Break Up With Him' Video
At the video's start frontman Matthew Ramsey is found skateboarding through his high school's halls to overhear a fight with a couple about to attend the school's dance. The clip's resident bully is played by his bandmate Trevor Rosen in which he is seen forcing his date upstairs to the dance where, conveniently, Ramsey will soon be performing.
Arriving late to the stage, Ramsey grabs his guitar and mic and makes eyes at the beautiful girl he just saw in the hallway. He sings directly to her, trying to convince her to, well, "Break Up with Him." Her boyfriend notices this and won't let the singer get away with wooing his girl, so he enlists the help of his friends. As he drags the girl out of the dance, his friends hint at the impending fight before Ramsey's doppelganger from the future saves the day.
'The concept of the video for 'Break Up with Him' is based around the movie Back to the Future," Ramsey told Taste of Country. 'It's this crazy reconstruction of all our favorite scenes. We're constantly on the bus talking about the movie. We're all huge fans, so we wanted to do something different and not just kind of interpret the song." Read more here.
