Hilary Duff isn't in the running for employee of the month.
In fact, she's more likely to be named worst employee ever in "Chasing the Sun." After creating a buzz online, the 26-year-old singer's first music video since 2008's "Reach Out" debuted late Monday night. The video opens with Duff daydreaming in her office and reading a magazine called "Vacation Station."
Before you know it, the pop star imagines herself frolicking on the beach with a half-naked hunk. Duff is brought back to reality after she accidentally runs into a glass window, interrupting a business meeting.
She may have clocked in, but she checked out long before she set foot inside the office.
While staring at postcards tacked to a bulletin board, Duff envisions herself sipping cocktails on the beach. She also pours coffee into a martini glass, as that's the kind of thing a terrible employee does. Duff's colleagues gawk at her in disbelief as she zones out yet again. This time, she imagines getting a rubdown from her beach beau. In reality, her geeky co-worker gives her a massage in the break room.
The caffeine buzz didn't help Duff stay alert, as she deludes herself into thinking she's actually playing with a beach ball. In reality, just before she makes a hamster ball airborne (are office hamsters a thing?), she realizes just how spacy she is—her co-workers notice, too. To be fair, Duff apologizes to her pet pal.
