We pretty much died and went to heaven a few months ago when Janelle Monae released her synth-heavy cover of David Bowie's classic "Heroes," but we're returning from the afterlife to do it all over again now that we have a video for the song. Directed by Alyssa Pankiw, the video stars a bunch of bullied kids who get inspired by each other's friendship and by a comic book heroine named Janelle to stick up for themselves - in amazing homemade outfits. If you needed your dose of uplifting, inspiring sweetness today, you got it. Check it out.
