"Double Vision" is a song by 3OH!3 from their album Streets of Gold. The song, which was released as the third promo single as part of the "Countdown to Streets of Gold", also doubles as the album's official second single. The song has been added to Radio 1's B Playlist in the United Kingdom. The official remix features rapper Wiz Khalifa. A Simlish version of this song is also featured on the soundtrack for The Sims 3: Late Night video game expansion pack.[3]

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Evan Bernard.[4] The video was released at noon GMT in UK and was available worldwide at noon EST on 20 August. The video resembles browsing through a page on the Internet, with various people (including the 3OH!3 duo) performing actions on a static background picture to mimic short video clips or advertisements as the "page" periodically scrolls down.
