Music videos are supposed to be artistic representations of the music the artist wants to put across. What they end up being is an excuse for casting directors to put pretty girls in precarious situations for 12 seconds of screen time.
Oh well, so long as the chicks are cute the system works. Artists get their music out there, marketers get paid to hype it and advertisers grease the system with dollars all so you can enjoy this 3:45 montage of cool that the artists want to lay on you. Bring ‘em on, baby.
Lonely Lassie (Slim Thug & Z-Ro – “On My Mind”)
Have you ever heard of leaving a half naked girl all alone in the bed so you can talk on the phone? If you have, you’re doing it wrong. A phone call can wait for you to take 3-4 minutes out of your day and give your lady the lackluster loving she deserves.
Slim Thug and Z-Ro spend this entire video showing how they can get pretty girls around them, but not close the deal. Seems to me that if you want to put yourself out there as a masculine force showing how much you can ignore pretty girls is counter-intuitive. But they’re the ones in the video. What do you know?
