In the seven-minute clip, Lazer breaks down his signature stylization and inspiration behind “ATM.” “[We] were looking at ways that we could adopt some of the things that Hype Williams did so brilliantly,” he says. Lazer went on to state his how the film Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Busta Rhymes‘ “Gimme Some More” MV shot by Hype Williams also played a big part in the creation process.
