You’re right it is all about control and being in the drivers seat. But do you want to know my favorite part of the video, the Hot Cheetos Mr Glover was eating.

It’s much better than my own. I thought that it was a reinactment of the “Eddie Murphy picking up transsexuals” scandal. That was based upon the dated clothes and car.

Good work man. Log in to Reply Malcolm Edgecombe 02/15/2012 at 9:22 AM I would expect this from CG. Bouncing around in a nightclub or soundstage wouldn’t have done this song justice. The storytelling video is a lost art. Log in to Reply SimplyMeRenee 02/14/2012 at 11:14 PM I, like you, did not fully understand this song until after seeing the video. A lightbulb went off like “hey! THAT’S what he’s talking about!” I love your analysis.

Log in to Reply Charm 02/14/2012 at 5:35 PM I agree, the video adds to the depth of the song. Great post Log in to Reply Tye Diamond 02/14/2012 at 5:27 PM Great post and hopefully more people can get and appreciate the genius of Mr. Gambino. I kinda got some of the tones from the music but the video went over my head. Glad you broke it down. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
