Even Luke Bryan admires the nostalgic idea that Ferris Bueller put into our heads a couple decades ago that life speeds past you if you don’t stop to look around and enjoy it every once in a while.
Showing off the simplicity of remembering the good ol’ times, the music video for Bryan’s single, “Fast,” hones in on how much things have changed in a blink of an eye for him and his family. While shooting for the video, the country star and his team wanted to replicate the easiness of life rolling by with focusing in on Bryan in an empty theater based on the campus of Indiana University for a close-to-home feeling.
When the cameras are rolling, it seems to be all business for Bryan as he strums his guitar softly. But the minute they yell cut, he’s pulling out his plucking skills or even seen FaceTiming his son about his latest relationship with the girl he likes at school. Bryan even explained the emotional meaning behind the tune when he wrote with a couple of iconic Nashville songwriters, and why they all wanted to bring forth the sentimental meaning toward the progression of life.
“’Fast’ is a song that I got the opportunity to get in the room with Rodney Clawson and Luke Laird. I’m just so proud about how we used a simple word like fast, we tied the verses in, and how life does move too fast. Every time I come home, my boys are bigger and starting to throw me around the house a little more,” Bryan admitted in the clip.
