Even though Pharrell and company put out a very dope album when they released Seeing Sounds earlier this year I was not expecting this video to drop. In fact, this vid just became a dark horse for video of the year in my opinion. N.E.R.D.’s treatment of the recent financial crisis is one of the few topical music videos that actually succeeds in its premise.
The only thing I don’t like about it is the fact that they cut out the best part of the song!! The almost 2 minute long guitar solo at the end of this track pretty much pwns any rock song I’ve heard in the past 5 years. It also served as the motivation to get back into guitar.
