Music Video Pick | “Michael Jackson” by Das Racist

Posted: September 14th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Blog, Freeform | Tags: , , , ,

Das Racist’s most well-known song to date is by far “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell,” but their first single off their album Relax could give that song a run for its money. “Michael Jackson” follows a very similar formula to their rap group’s first major hit in its repetitive chorus, but this track also features a great verse from Heems. The recently released music video only adds to the already quirky sound. A Michael Jackson impersonator features prominently, and Das Racist’s use of green-screen technology is flawlessly tacky as they are transported from a Polynesian island to a desert to somewhere in Japan. Quite honestly, the video makes little to no sense. There’s no storyline and it often feels like a bunch of clips thrown together. But that eclectic mix is what makes Das Racist what it is. Besides, who doesn’t want to see Heems in a banana hammock? If you feel me, holler and watch the clip after the jump.
