A Video That Never Gets Old

Posted by admin On November - 5 - 2008

-A.S. My friend Matt loves to watch music videos. Sometimes he goes a little overboard with the same videos or cuts off some of my favorite songs before they even get started. It’s like he plays just enough for me to figure out what it was and that I’m mad I’m not hearing it anymore.

Once in a while he pulls a gem out of his rear end. A classic from my childhood that I haven’t seen in some time. Yesterday was one of those days. Usually when Matt tells me he wants to show me a music video, I expect my favorite Lupe Fiasco verse from “Daydreamin'” come to life on screen:

Now come on everybody, let’s make cocaine cool/We need a few more half naked women up in the pool/And hold this MAC-10 that’s all covered in jewels/And can you please put your titties closer to the 22s?/And where’s the champagne? We need champagne/Now look as hard as you can with this blunt in your hand/And now hold up your chain slow motion through the flames/Now cue the smoke machines and the simulated rain

This time it was Fatboy Slim’s “Praise You.” A fantastic video directed by Spike Jonze. One of these days we’re just going to have a Spike Jonze music video tribute, because the list is beyond impressive. Like more impressive than many leather bound books and rich mahogany. After watching the video, check out the background story.
