Some folks understand the power of an aptly timed diversion. Jay Z and Beyoncé, apparently, are among them.

Not a week after the now-infamous Standard Hotel elevator incident and just two days after a sweeping follow-up statement that said everything and nothing all at once, the duo dropped in the wee hours of Saturday night, just minutes after a fairly amusing Saturday Night Live skewering of the situation, their own cinematic triumph: a trailer for the upcoming co-headlining On the Run Tour.

Titled “Run” and directed by frequent collaborator Melina Matsoukas, the three-minute clip doesn’t just get by on the bow-to-me star power of Bey Z. The teaser features a plethora of cameos, from Sean Penn and Don Cheadle to Jake Gyllenhaal and Blake Lively.

Head over to Radio.com to see us count down the five best moments from this exercise in excess — and altogether fun.
