Jay Z & Beyoncé Are On the Run From the Law in Their Latest Video

Jay Z and Beyonce are effectively Bonnie and Clyde in this promotional video for their upcoming On The Run tour.

Shot in the style of a mock trailer for an non-existent film, the clip features Hollywood stars such as Don Cheadle, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sean Penn, and Blake Lively playing drug lords, cops and degenerates in an action-packed three minutes.

As public enemies on the run Jay and Bey embark on a fun-filled but slightly incomprehensible journey as outlaws in a video that has production values way, way higher than their last effort together—the grainy footage taken from an elevator cam at New York’s Standard Hotel.

Fans have been tracking the Knowles sisters' Instagram accounts as barometers for their current relationship, obsessively following which photos are posted and which have been removed. In an apparent nod to this, on Saturday, Beyoncé shared a snap of she and Solange posing together.
