"It's Stiiiiiiing" Tony Schivone yelled as the wrestling legend made his first appearance on TNT in 18 years, since WCW folded. But AEW's Dynamite isn't the only place Sting is popping up. He just made a cameo in the brand new video from Islander for the track "Crazy Crazy World."
The video sees a regular day in the life of the legend. My favorite part is his Great American Bash jacket just hanging in the background of the opening shots.
As for Sting's contribution to the video, Islander‘s Mikey Carvajal said of the video “‘Crazy Crazy World‘ is a song that everyone can relate to in one way or another. I wrote the lyrics when I was struggling with depression, but it really is an anthem for the times we are all in right now. It’s not a heavy song musically, but this whole year has been heavy enough for everyone. We wanted to contrast the heaviness with something beautiful and relatable, especially considering no one can mosh or stage dive or anything that comes along with being an aggressive band right now. Since this next record is easily the heaviest album we’ve done to date, we wanted to switch it up.”
“The visual for this song stars the wrestling legend, Sting. He is my favorite wrestler of all time, and he’s one of the coolest people I’ve ever had the honor to know or work with. In the wrestling business, when you help someone’s career, it’s known as ‘putting someone over.’ So I really can’t thank Sting enough for putting us over. It definitely feels like Islander has finally made it to main event with this track.”
The group also released this behind the scenes clip:
