Video Review: Surf Mesa & Emilee “ily (i love you baby)”

In Los Angeles, California, Surf Mesa adjusts his necklace as he dances by his car. The cars travel between the two main roads.

He drives his car through the a suburb. While walking on the beach, he pulls up his hoodie. As he drives, he forms a heart with his hand. He parks his car on the curb at home. He rides his skateboard on the street in his neighborhood. At night, he sits cross-legged on the street. He parks his car in a hotel parking lot and sits on the hood. Laughing, he forms a heart with his hand as he walks on the beach.
