Jordan Witzigreuter of The Ready Set is out with behind the scenes footage for the ‘Give Me Your Hand (Best Song Ever)’ music video. The song is featured on Jordan’s upcoming second album on Decaydance Records.

“It’s pretty much a fun video. We’re at a really nice, cool house in Encino,” Jordan said. “I’m not sure who’s house it is, but I’d like to have it. It’s gonna be a party. It’s gonna be fun. We’re gonna have a pool. We’re gonna have red cups and we’re gonna have mystery things in it. That’s what it’s about. Having a good time and red cups.”

Director Matt Alonzo described his approach to the video saying, “When I heard the record I just wanted to have fun with the record. I looked at who it was and I watched a lot of his videos and see what he’s really about. We kind of collaborate all his ideas and all his videos and just kind of everything he’s about, but also what we’re about and the whole party scene. The whole summer and just kind of party out. It’s gonna get a little bit wild.”
