Avicii’s “Hey Brother” Video Will Tug On Your Heartstrings: Watch

By: Mike Wass / December 9, 2013

Avicii‘s heartstring-pulling “Hey Brother” video could be the Swedish DJ’s most audacious clip yet. Unlike his blockbuster “Wake Me Up” and “You Make Me” visuals, this effort has a strong narrative — showing the impact of war on a pair of siblings.

The clip shows the boys growing up with nostalgic scenes of camping, barbecues and sleepovers before the idyllic picture is shattered by the older brother being sent to war. Their family tragedy packs an emotional punch and it’s great to see Avicii make an unexpected last minute cameo. Watch up top.

Is this Avicii’s best video yet? You be the judge in the comments below.
