Slice, which was shot last summer, was directed by Chance collaborator Austin Vesely. In a 2015 interview, Vesely, who co-directed Chance’s “No Problem” video, said he was inspired by George Saunders’ CivilWarLand in Bad Decline, and that Slice takes place in an alternate universe with “supernatural elements that people accept as reality,” reports Pitchfork.

Slice isn’t the only acting credit Chance has chalked up lately. He recently starred in a Kit Kat commercial, and sang a new interpretation of the jingle.
