Childish Gambino, “Freaks and Geeks”

At first I was unimpressed by this just-released video; Donald Glover obviously has a ridiculous amount of creativity inside him that he can’t help but dribble out of every pore, and so to just film him runnin’ around in a warehouse didn’t make that evident. Then about halfway through, his dancing got a little bit more frantic, the panning got near enough for me to see his facial expressions and his earnestness, and it finally ended on just his face. I felt uncomfortable making eye contact with him after the emotional vomit that is this rap. And when it comes to music videos, I’d much rather be uncomfortable than entertained.
