Jay Z and Beyoncé are on the run in a new tour teaser

Jay Z and Beyoncé just released the star-studded trailer for their summer tour, which is a thing musical power couples do now. It’s titled “Run,” and though we never know who Bey and Jay are on the run from, they manage to look flawless while robbing banks, shooting guns, and walking away from an explosion in slow motion.

It was directed by Melina Matsoukas, who also directed Bey’s “Pretty Hurts” video, as well as clips for Solange and Rihanna. Jake Gyllenhaal, Sean Penn, Don Cheadle, Blake Lively, Emmy Rossum, Guillermo Diaz, and Rashida and Kidada Jones guest star, and indulge some fairly cringe-worthy, context-less dialogue. In this fantasy world, Bey and Blake Lively are besties (Blake can’t stand to see her this way!), Jay Z and Sean Penn exchange bizarre barbecue metaphors in a strip club, and Don Cheadle is extra Cheadle-y.

It’s such an expansive (and, likely, expensive) trailer, one has to wonder if there will be follow-up teasers. Perhaps that elevator fight was really some sort of marketing stunt for this trailer, which is basically just one big advertisement for Bey-Z’s amazing relationship. 

Uh, I mean…I love Beyoncé and this is a true work of art!
