Owl City Time Travels in 'Deer in the Headlights' Video

July 1, 2011 (8:03 am) GMT
Adam Young is like a deer in the headlights when he realizes that he's staring at an old bearded man after a moment ago he thought he saw a beautiful woman.

One-man act travels to the future in a music video for his latest single "Deer in the Headlights". In this clip, Adam Young ditches his skateboard and hops a DeLorean from 1985 movie "Back to the Future". He drives it in a speed light and makes a stop at a convenience store. In his dream-state mind, he runs into a beautiful girl only to realize that he's staring at a bearded man in turban.

"It's a quirky video for a cheeky song that quips, 'Why are we in love if it's for all the wrong reasons?' " he explained the concept of the video. "The song is about fending off the blinding light of superficial fluff relationships and saying, 'Thanks, but I'd rather be alone and thus avoid a million shallow heartbreaks until I meet the girl of my dreams.' "

"Deer in the Headlights" is lifted from Owl City's second studio album "" which has been released in the United States since June 14.
