Mating Ritual Made The Music Video “Game” So Taylor Could Dress Like A Viking

Random fact: did you know this track was in TV series ‘You’?

LA-based duo Mating Ritual shows us exactly what happens when you try to make your fantasies come to real life in new video “Game” where we see Taylor Marshal dressed as a Viking while flaunting his swordsmanship, archery and selfie skills. Even though this gives off some Game of Thronesvibes, the song is actually much closer to that psychopath TV series called You. Why? Well, there’s no Viking in there BUT there is a scene where the psychopath is talking with his crush at a bar and this song is playing in the background (episode 2ish). This is the perfect track to live your Viking fantasies or seducing your next victim:

“‘Game’ is about your plans and fantasies bleeding into your regular life and the restlessness that comes from detaching from reality for comfort when it ultimately leads to loneliness. And Taylor likes to dress up like a Viking.” shared the duo.
