Mike Shinoda Shares Kaleidoscopic New Video For ‘Happy Endings’

Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda has shared the new video for “Happy Endings” featuring iann dior and UPSAHL.

Directed by PIX3LFACE, the video features 90’s inspired animation, some drawn by Shinoda himself, as the three perform the song against a sunny Los Angeles backdrop.

Watch the video below.

Shinoda released the single last month via an NFT (non-fungible token) auction, making him the first major label artist to do so. After offering fans a snippet of the song, they were able to bid on the song with the final top 10 bidders receiving an original print of the single artwork signed by Shinoda and contemporary artist Cain Caser. Proceeds from the auction will benefit ArtCenter College of Design.

Prior to this, Shinoda created a digital art piece titled “One Hundredth Stream” using the NFT cryptocurrency. The composition’s highest bid came in at 18,000 DAI, a stablecoin cryptocurrency that closely parallels the U.S. dollar — estimated to be around $18,000. Later that same day, Zora announced that Shinoda had accepted a bid equaling $30,000 (200 WETH), which the musician plans to donate to charity.
