Music videos 16

70 Juvenile: “Back That Azz Up”
This certainly follows a whole lot of rap conventions: dancing women getting jiggy with it, lyrics about money and women, and a live performance. In the end though, it does look fun. That last sentence sounded pretty white, didn't it?

69 Daft Punk: “Da Funk”
Another Spike Jonze classic. Watch as the sad man-dog has a bad night on the streets of NYC. Kind of trigger happy-ish in that nobody thinks that it is strange for there to be a ghetto blaster-toting man-dog. Really great, and at the time it seemed pretty pioneering to relegate the music to the background for huge portions. Weep as you hear how good Daft Punk used to be.
