The season 10 favorite plays an elaborate prank as the multi-instrumentalist finally releases a video for "Get Out."

Fans of American Idol season 10 singer Casey Abrams were a bit concerned earlier this week when their favorite contestant showed up in a weird video, strumming an acoustic guitar in the street with just a stuffed gorilla for a pillow. 

As it turns out, Abrams punked us all. The multi-instrumentalist is still signed to Concord Records, actually has his own place and was merely setting the stage for the real reveal: his new video for the catchy single, "Get Out."

Both clips a hoot. The first one, "Casey Abrams is Homless,"  features cameos by Jack Black, season 10 alums Haley Reinhart and Paul McDonald and season six runner-up Blake Lewis. 

The "Get Out" video casts Abrams as a subway musician with a few nice touches, specifically a bit where Abrams plays each instruments in an all-Casey busking band.
