Gym Class Heroes team up with Ryan Tedder on their inspirational hit The Fighter and enlist the help of US gymnast and Olympic hopeful John Orozco to deliver a documentary style music video. Shots of Orozco training in his home city of Bronx, New York, spending time with family and home videos deliver a message that viewers can’t help but find inspiration in.
While many music videos that attempt an motivational message often fall short and give off more of a pandering affect, The Fighter delivers a message of courage and triumph that leaves the viewer wanting more.
Front man Travie McCoy’s smooth delivery of his raps mesh perfectly with Tedder’s uplifting chorus of perseverance. The song is part of Gym Class Heroes third album The Papercut Chronicles II.Tweet
