Jay Z and Beyoncé's Gun-Toting Alter Egos Return in New Video

Like a slick heist movie, Jay Z and Beyoncé storm into a film trailer with enough gusto to make Elmore Leonard blush from the grave. The trailer turns out to be a teaser for their On The Run joint summer tour, and from the video alone we can tell it's going to be epic.

The three-minute clip features enough guns to fill a Maybach, plus a who's-who list of Hollywood cameos. The couple that presides over hip-hop like royalty is sending a clear, distinct message: this isn't just a tour, this is a cultural event that has all the audacity and production value we've come to expect from the charmed duo. 

So, unlike that poor schlep who thought it would be wise to record Solange attacking Jay and sell it to the highest bidder, just accept that Beyoncé is going to rob a bank, and accept that Jay Z is going to exchange tough talk with Sean Penn. It's easier to accept that these two run the world, and you're just living in it.
