John Mayer Goes Outside: Musician Shows Off His (Not So) Rugged Side

Trading his guitar for a fishing rod and a camera, John Mayer finds all-new inspiration for the soul. And he (almost) learns to skip rocks.

“How about we just go outside and see what happens?” Mayer asks the assembled camera and sound crew. Thus kicks off the off-beat but delightfully moving short film “John Mayer Goes Outside,” presented by Land Rover.

Behind the wheel of a shiny new Defender, Mayer finds a fishing hole and explores the oldest trees on Earth. And amid the adventure, he even finds time to pen a tribute tune to his time in nature.
