Damn. This is a great video.
Childish Gambino already won me over with his STN MTN / Kauai Mixtape last year. Kauai’s first track, Sober or how I put it as Michael Jackson’s unreleased Off The Wall single of 3005, now has some very clever visuals premiered on NPR.
In it, a disorientated Donald Glover woos a girl at a cafe with a cascade of impressive moves expressing the track. “Sober” is paced wonderfully that it all works wonders in a MJ “Way You Make Me Feel” sort of way.
This type of courtship might only work when you’re “So High”. Still anything is worth a shot, right? Look forward to ‘Sober” spawning some great viral videos.
