Music video

The release of the music video for "Alone" was released on July 2, 2016 on both Marshmello's and Monstercat's YouTube channels. It is the 11th most liked YouTube video. +more.

The video shows Marshmello being bullied by his fellow schoolmates. A sympathetic classmate goes to his house after school, but sees him creating music. +more The music video was filmed at "The Pegasus School" in California. She decides to record and share a video of her findings and Marshmello becomes more popular overnight. The video ends with Marshmello taking out his portable EDM Pad Controller, a Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S4 MK2, and stirring up a dance party in his classroom.

During the video Marshmello is shown placing a rat in a cage with the label "Joel" on the front. This is reference to Canadian electronic music producer and DJ Joel "deadmau5" Zimmerman. +more The reason behind this joke was a series of tweets posted by the Canadian DJ blasting Marshmello for his "poor music" and calling his followers "brain-dead sheep". Marshmello responded jokingly asking if deadmau5 wanted to have a basketball match and the loser would buy dinner, after which, the Canadian DJ deleted all of his tweets that disputed Marshmello.

A Fortnite music video was released on October 14, 2019 on Marshmello's YouTube channel.
