Young Thug’s new music video with pissed off director that he didn’t turn up for is an awful success

Thugger’s new music video for ‘Wyclef Jean’ just dropped and the shooting was a mess, so the “pissed off” director made the fuck-ups the actual video.

Let me first get started by saying I don’t like Young Thug’s music, nor his personality particularly, so I’m not biased when I say that his shitty new music video is probably the best of 2017 so far, thanks to Pomp&Clout – the genius directors who transformed a music video snowballing with issues into a video that points out every single one of their issues.

The video immediately breaks the fourth wall with Ryan Staake, who “co-directed” the video with Thug, explaining to the viewer what was supposed to happen with the music video. Then the rollercoaster ride that is Young Thug’s music video for Wyclef Jean starts.

The video features bad editing, awkward cuts, unintentional police in the background, all narrated to explain how much of a mess the shoot was. Thug didn’t even shoot any footage for the video after his instagram was hacked on arrival to the set and soon drove off in a tissy.

It’s hard to explain why all the wrong things made this video so right, so just watch it for yourself and enjoy this stupid, yet stupidly good music video.

I’m not sure how much truth there is in the disaster of trying to film this video but knowing the difficulties with filming high budget videos and Thugger’s attitude it could all well have happened exactly as said. Although I assume the director isn’t actually too miffed with Young Thug.

One Reddit user commented on the director’s emotion which I think sums up the video if not his feelings: “I feel like, after 2016, we’re all in this post-existentialist world where nothing really makes sense anymore and everyone is breaking all the rules. This is really some next level shit, I can’t wait to see what happens next.”
