We can’t help but imagine we’re watching a lost Glee episode as we take in the new video for Macy Gray’s optimistic, jingle-like single, “Beauty in the World.” We’ve got tons of dancing, singing, smiling kids, not to mention a cheerleading squad that could be the Cheerios’ stunt doubles. All that’s missing is a tedious subplot about a teenage pregnancy, Macy Gray, and the kids performing at sectionals and we’re pretty sure we’ve got the season finale right here. Check out the happy-go-lucky vid, directed by Adria Petty (yes, Tom Petty’s daughter) below and try not to crack a smile.

And here’s the album cover to Macy Gray’s The Sellout, due June 21. It’s much more flattering than Macy’s Wikipedia photo, no?
