This video is the GIF that keeps on GIFing.

John Mayer is a walking meme in his new music video for "New Light," which dropped Thursday morning on YouTube.

"I needed to make a video for 'New Light' but nobody could agree on a budget. (MUSIC INDUSTRY amirite?)," he explained on Twitter. "So I went to a place downtown and made this with a company that usually does birthday and Bar Mitzvah videos."

And man, does it entertain.

Mayer clearly skimped on the wardrobe budget as well for this one, appearing in a tattered sweatshirt and striped pajama pants as he does his thing in front of a green screen.

Just a few of the exotic locales he "visits": New York City, Paris, Egypt, the beach and one random woman's cubicle.

"Every once in a while a song comes along so powerful it requires a music video fast," he explained in a teaser for the visual. "Like really fast. Where literally anything is better than nothing." The teaser asked, "Is it good? It it content? You're damn right it's content."

Mayer knows exactly what he's doing with this one and we're here for it. See a few of our favorite GIFs from the video below!
