Steve Aoki and Darren Criss provide Beavis and Butthead-style commentary on their own music video. The two recently teamed up to cover Dave Matthews Band's "Crash Into Me." Now, their cover is the subject of a multi-layered visual accompaniment. 

This summer Steve Aoki and Darren Criss wound up in each other's company. Despite coming from two very different backgrounds professionally, the two bonded over the classics. As an actor, songwriter and singer, Criss had a triple-threat background, but his project with Aoki would mark his foray into the electronic space.

Explaining how the cover came to be, Aoki commented, "Darren and I wanted to do something different and surprising out of the gate with our collaboration. We bonded over classics and this surely was one of them."
