BEST NEW VIDEOS: ELLIPHANT “CLUB SKUNK NOW (FT. BIG FREEDIA)”
I believe it was Justin Bieber who said: “By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.” Well folks, you can stop believing, because Elliphant and Big Freedia have finally done a collab. “Club Skunk Now” is pure manic energy, and both the Swede and the New Orleans native chew up every last ounce of it.
From the jump “Club Skunk Now” is pure kinetic chaos. Scandanavia meets The Big Easy doesn’t sound quite like you’d expect it to. (What exactly did you expect that to sound like?) The two artists share some call and response verses over a banging, stuttering beat.
The VHS-themed video directed by Johan Holm nearly matches the song for weirdness and intensity. Our heroes navigate their way through series of digital landscapes that vaguely resemble the brain-washing scene from Zoolander.
But enough of my words, get to checking out the song and video that will reignite your passion for life.
ELLIPHANT “CLUB SKUNK NOW (FT. BIG FREEDIA)”
On second thought, as someone who just switched back to an antenna in order to watch TV, this video doesn’t seem so strange.
“Club Skunk Now” is available for purchase and streaming everywhere you’d expect it to be.
