In case you weren't already feverish with excitement for Beyoncé (opens in new tab) and Jay Z's On the Run Tour (opens in new tab), the power couple just unveiled the promo video and it's so epic you quite literally won't believe your eyes.

Let's begin with the A-list cameos: It's no secret that the couple's rolodex reads like a who's who list of Hollywood stars, but seeing Sean Penn, Don Cheadle, Jake Gyllenhaal, Blake Lively (opens in new tab), Emmy Rossum, and Rashida Jones (opens in new tab) packed into a 4-minute clip is a testament to their clout. And the storyline? They take the '03 Bonnie & Clyde to 2014, partaking in modern day drug dealings, bank robberies, car chases, and other such misdemeanors, in seductive fashion.

Bey may have to justify her thug for Jay, but who wants that perfect love story, anyway?
