Rashida Jones (Quincy’s daughter) gets her music video directorial debut on. The television star “Parks & Recreation,” “Boston Public,” and “The Office” gave Mayer Hawthorne a narrative feel on his Kendrick Lamar-assisted “Crime.”

The song about the fast life gets a slow-moving visual that adds some new insights to the 2013, Where Does This Door Go? moment.

Says Rashida: “The video is a parody of ridiculously exclusive parties which are made nearly impossible to get to but tout themselves as ‘the party of the year.’ I liked the idea of the video starting as a sexy getting-ready video and devolving into a messy, very unsexy, unexpected trek. And the final realization is that YOU are the real party! I’m just starting to realize that about myself (which is why I stay home most nights). I am a HUGE fan of Mayer, Kendrick, and of the song “Crime” and it was an honor to work with Mayer.”
