Diplo attends the Rangeland Derby — with a slow-motion shot featuring Dale Mitsuing’s chuckwagon — and can also be seen firing a t-shirt cannon into the crowd.

Diplo visited Calgary in July to perform with Loud Luxury at The Palace Theater during the 2019 Calgary Stampede, posting dozens of Instagram stories showing his visit.

“It was fun to host them at Stampede,” Calgary Stampede spokesperson Jennifer Booth said. “We showed them some really great experiences that showed up in the video, and we’re happy to be a part of it as it will be watched by millions of people around the world.”

The song is released under the moniker of Thomas Wesley (Diplo’s real name is Thomas Wesley Pentz, Jr.) and is a part of his country music project.
