Stoner, a Disney channel veteran who appeared on shows like The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and That’s So Raven, dances alongside several Adidas-clad kids in the video, which was directed by Tim Milgram. The tribute features the three aforementioned Elliott songs, and includes dancer/choreographer Kenya Clay as “Missy” and young performer Tati McQuay as “Little Alyson.”
