The collaboration with Omar LinX shows the two riding around Los Angeles. Of course, Marshmello doesn’t catch any of that lovely LA sun because he keeps his character hat (Helmet? Marshmallow head? We’re not quite sure what to call it) on the entire time.
No surprises there, though. The face behind the mask has yet to be revealed. Last year, Skrillex almost gave away his identity during an interview with Katie Couric. Skrillex’s phone buzzed, and Skrillex answered using the name “Chris.” However, from then on, he only referred to the caller as “Marshmello.”
hey @Skrillex i miss u

Suspicion also arises over the fact that Marshmello’s Twitter account has several big name followers, including Jauz, Dotcom and Sikdope. Given that Chris Comstock, aka Dotcom, shares a booking agent with those other artists, speculation has arisen that Marshmello is a side project of Comstock himself.
A couple days after Skrillex’s interview, Marshmello released a track called “KnOw Me” with a photo of Couric, which seemed to confirm fans’ guesses on Marshmello’s identity.
Regardless, the marshmallow head remains on in the video, allowing whomever is under it to have some anonymity. And eat a lot of marshmallows.
Omar LinX is no stranger on collaborating with other artists. He frequently works with duo Zeds Dead, who you can catch at a number of festivals including Bonnaroo and Imagine Music Festival.

This looks like a crowd we’d like to hang out with.
