The film establishes Victor as...

But when you take a look at the video, and listen a bit more to the lyrics, it’s about much more than that. Rather, it's about all of the things people hide. Let’s dive deeper. The first single from Anderson .Paak’s Oxnard dropped on October 4, 2018, followed by an incredibly colorful and vibrant music video.
