Thirty Seconds To Mars’ ‘Bright Lights’ Lyric Video’s Basically An Echelon Love Letter

Watch Thirty Seconds To Mars' new lyric video for "Bright Lights."

Feel the Echelon love in Thirty Seconds To Mars’ new lyric video.

Even the biggest Thirty Seconds To Mars n00b will tell you that frontman Jared Leto is insanely grateful for all of the support his fans have brought him and the band over the years. Hello, that shout-out to the Echelon during his 2014 MTV Movie Awards acceptance speech for Best On-Screen Transformation? (Take notes, all other bands.)

That’s why it’s unsurprising that the group’s new lyric video for “Bright Lights” is completely packed full of audience shots taken during 30STM’s various live performances. Pssst, 50 bucks a nickel to anyone who can successfully spot themselves.

Even though we don’t get the personal touch of those vignette interviews that “Do Or Die” offered, the implied gratitude from the band is sweet (of course, if you’re a member of the Echelon, you already knew that). Besides, we get footage of Jared sprinting through the woods shirtless, ombré hair blowing in the wind, which we think is a pretty fair trade-off.

So, kick back, Echelon, and let the love wash over you. Hopefully, you don’t have anywhere to be for the next few hours, because you’re gonna wanna “read” this love letter over and over and over and over and…
