-The VHS effect, making the video look like a dubbed porn you found in your dad’s closet.
-Looking like Bootsy on them steps before the lights come up.
-Taking the talk box tube out of his mouth before the effects let up. Gangsta.
-The Doves bite towards the end.
Feel free to highlight your own.
I do appreciate being informed as to what “the profanity represents,” though.
These are some songs and videos that i just can’t get enough of:
The GAME f. kanYe West – “WOULDN’T GET FAR”
The wardrobe malfunction in the beginning of the video is more telling of the state of hip-hop today and the characters these rappers play than anything since Slick Rick’s “It’s a Boy” and Biggie & 112′s “Sky’s the Limit” videos that had little kids dressed up as the rappers of the day.
Kanye West – “throw some D’s” REMIX
“That’s why i respect Alicea Keys,
she said effit i’ma just ride with these!”
How many rappers you hear saying they respect
any other woman than their momma?!
Once again a rapper playing a role. but this is more tongue-in-cheek. Maybe this is Kanye getting himself in “dirty old man” mode. I love the motion graphic puppets in this aswell. Great concept. So simple and SO well executed!

and one more!
UGK & Outkast – Int’l Player’s Anthem (Extended Cut)
This is what makes Outkast great. The yin and yang, spacey vs. down-to-earth bookends of Three Stacks and Fat Sacks (love that! Andre 3000 and Big Boi respectively) add so much personality to a simple song about pimpin’.
