Premiere: Vacationer’s ‘Paradise Waiting’ Music Video Captures The Whimsy of Roller Skating

Remember that viral video from a couple years ago of the charismatic, mustachioed roller skater falling down in the park? Yes, of course you do. His embarrassing moment may live on in Internet infamy, but the good news is that he seems to be doing just fine today, because he and the rest of the The Central Park Dance Skaters Association star in the latest Vacationer music video, for their song “Paradise Waiting”. We are happy to premiere the super fun and whimsical video here today, so check it out above.

Vacationer’s Kenny Vasoli said of the Ryan Ewing-directed clip, “The video for ‘Paradise Waiting’ is the most touching visual I’ve seen put to our music. It captures the skaters completely in their element, and they all seem to be experiencing true bliss. That feeling is the most sought after human experience I can think of. I’m so proud to be a part of this piece.”

It turns out the sheer joy of carefree roller skating in the park is the perfect visual complement to the timeless, soul-influenced energy of Vacationer. “Paradise Waiting” comes from the band’s 2014 album Relief, and Vacationer also has a string of performances coming up, so check out their tour schedule below.
