Kid Cudi Feat. MGMT & Ratatat - Pursuit of Happiness

Kid Cudi

Just came across the video for “Pursuit of Happiness” by Kid Cudi feat. MGMT & Ratatat. This is off of Cudi’s Man on the Moon, which dropped last year. If you notice, that’s Drake standing next to Cudi. Why he’s in the video and MGMT/Ratatat aren’t I have no idea. I guess since Drake owned 2009, he gets to to whatever he wants.

Anyway, it’s a decent video, even though I’m not a big fan of the song. Check it out.

Ratatat's 'Falcon Jab' Music Video

Hot off the press is Ratatat’s latest music video for their song “Falcon Jab.” The track is from the New York duo’s 2008 hit album LP3. Personally, I’m not too privy to “Falcon Jab,” so naturally it’s tough for me to enjoy the music video. (I’m much more of a “Shiller” or “Mirando” kind of guy.) Nevertheless, the clips of the Ancient Greeks/Spartans, Amazonians, and Egyptians are very apropos in this trippy, psychedelic, and flat-out weird music video. It’s essentially an acid trip gone awry — but then again so is the song. Only a handful of bands could pull this off, and Ratatat is among them.
