Background[edit]

In an interview with Artistdirect, when asked what's the story behind "Perfect Day?" What does that song mean to you? Jones responded[2]

Music video[edit]

Directed by Zeus Morand and Jim Jones the video was released on Jim Jones VEVO on March 18, 2011. The video is set in various places including a hospital and features sign language for the hearing impaired. Jones' motivation for the innovative music video came from someone close to him: The mother of one of his close friends is deaf. "She asked, 'Why don't people in the music industry ever have people doing sign language in their videos because they love music, too?' They can feel the beat like anybody else," Jones told the Daily News in an interview at Empire Studio in the Flatiron District. Jones decided "Perfect Day" would be the ideal song to incorporate sign language - and he wanted to learn it as well. Jones dedicated the video to cancer patients or anyone affected by cancer, and to the soldiers at war right now.[3]
