A couple of years ago, Current ran a contest to make the music video for Common’s single, “Make My Day.” My homie, Jake, made this video in one sleepless weekend. I swanned around, smiled and bossed a bit and then promptly left the state for three days. When I got home, Jake was lying on the floor shaking from a caffeine overdose.
It’s stop-motion comprised of scores of photographs and animations of a Cee Lo/Common hybrid character that Jake created in Adobe Illustrator and After Effects. In addition to my largely self-directed role in the video, I was responsible for the styling and general look of the photo shoot. (Jake didn’t want to have nothing to do with my wardrobe.)
I wonder what happened to that towel. It’s an awesome color.
