Thirty Seconds to Mars ‘City of Angels’ Video Is Part Short Film, Part Tourism Campaign

Remember the days when Green Day’s seven-minute “Wake Me Up When September Ends” was considered an epic? Well, just wait until you lay your eyes on Thirty Seconds to Mars’ latest music video for “City of Angels.”

Capping in at 11 minutes, short film lengthy clip features Soarin’ Over California-esque shots of Hollywood spliced between interviews from celebrities like Kanye West, Selena Gomez, Lindsay Lohan, Olivia WildeJames Franco, Lily Collins, Shaun White, Corey Feldman, Alan Cumming, Steve Nash, Juliette Lewis, Ashley Olsen and — of course — the band’s very own frontman Jared Leto sharing their stories about Los Angeles.

Seriously? A plethora of Angelinos talking about their experience with the city and not one story involves sitting in traffic on the 405? I call shenanigans.

Lyrics for “City of Angels” are now on Directlyrics.
