Music video[edit]

Similar to the film The Haunted Mansion, Nelly inherits a mansion from his recently deceased uncle and throws a house party. However, his guests soon start falling victim to the hauntings of the house. Nelly soon confronts the evil spirit causing it all (also played by him) and defeats it by throwing an enchanted orb he received from a zombie at it. The evil spirit is destroyed and all the ghosts of the mansion are free.
