It’s easier to tell this story with a dose of humor, and Panic! At The Disco does just that in the music video for “Hey Look Ma, I Made It.” Singer Brendon Urie transforms into a playful puppet with a wild lifestyle. The track was produced by Dillon Francis, and the funnyman DJ makes a cameo in the video a little more than halfway through.

[Verse 1]
All my life, been hustlin’
And tonight is my appraisal
‘Cause I’m a hooker sellin’ songs
And my pimp’s a record label
This world is full of demons
Stocks and bonds and bible traders
So I do the deed
Get up and leave
A climber and a sadist, yeah

[Pre-Chorus]
Are you ready for the sequel?
Ain’t ready for the latest?
In the garden of evil
I’m gonna be the greatest
In a golden cathedral
I’ll be praying for the faithless
And if you lose, boo-hoo

 

 

[Chorus]
Hey look ma, I made it
Hey look ma, I made it
Everything’s comin’ up aces, aces
And if it’s a dream, don’t wake me, don’t wake me
I said, “Hey look ma, I made it.”

[Verse 2]
Friends are happy for me
Or they’re honeysuckle phonies
Then they celebrate my medals
Or they wanna take my trophies
Some are loyal soldiers
While these other thorns are rosy
And if you never know who you can trust
Then trust me, you’ll be lonely, oh

[Pre-Chorus]
Are you ready for the sequel?
Ain’t you ready for the latest?
In the garden of evil
I’m gonna be the greatest
In a golden cathedral
I’ll be praying for the faithless
And if you lose, boo-hoo

 


 

[Chorus]
Hey look ma, I made it
Hey look ma, I made it
Everything’s comin’ up aces, aces
And if it’s a dream, don’t wake me, don’t wake me
I said, “Hey look ma, I made it, I made it.”
I said, “Hey look ma, I made it, I made it.”
I see it, I want it, I take it, take it
If it’s a dream, don’t wake me, don’t wake me

[Outro]
I said, “Hey look ma, I made it.”
(Mama best believe it, Mama best believe it)
Hey look ma, I made it
(Think I must be dreamin’, wide awake and dreamin’)
Hey look ma, I made it
(Mama best believe it, Mama best believe it)
Hey look ma, I made it
(Think I must be dreamin’)
Hey look ma, I made it

Last week is Panic’s new album! At the Disco appeared. According to VIVA’s Midweek charts, “Pray For The Wicked” can almost certainly be placed in the top 10 in this country. It seems Brandon Urie not so much for the associated fame and excitement to interest. The video for “Hey Look Ma, I Made It” can hardly be interpreted otherwise.

In the clip to see: Brandon Urie as a hand puppet – on the way from the young artist to the celebrated star. While the music goes neatly forward and sounds like a good mood, what you see in the clip breaks that impression though and draws attention to the other side of the coin.
