iDKHOW’s New Video For ‘Social Climb’ Takes Aim The Toxic Tropes Of The Entertainment Business

Not to ruin it, but in this video there's "leagues of social climbers all about"...

iDKHOW take aim at the toxic tropes of the entertainment biz in this brand new video for 'Social Climb'. 

The video for 'Social Climb' places both Dallon Weekes and Ryan Seaman at the centre of a lavish party of the living dead, taking the form of an instructional training video of how to fit in with the upper echelon of society. It just so happens that the upper echelon of society are entirely bored social climbers (but they're obviously still incredibly beautiful).

Sharing the inspiration behind the song, and accompanying video, Dallon has shared “'Social Climb' is about my experiences living in L.A. for almost a decade, orbiting this world of celebrity and money... The parties that must be attended, the behaviors that must be adopted, and just not feeling part of that sphere. It’s what it feels like to be alone in a crowded room.”

Additional fun fact - the video was shot in Dallon's hometown of Salt Lake City at the McCune Mansion, an opulent estate built in 1900 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Which really all just helps add to the glamour.
