I’m Rollin’, I’m Rollin’, I…

Y’all have probably already heard this song and danced around to it eight million times.

But you know, I have to run out to the eye doctor and, on the off-chance you haven’t heard it and you want to dance around to something, or you have heard it, but you want to dance around again, here you go.

Ha, weren’t we just the other day talking about what happens to blogs when they become all Youtube videos the blogger likes? Ugh. Well, in my defense, I don’t really care for about half of this video. It’s like a cool video and a deodorant commercial mash-up.

Edited to add: I mean, please! How are the men able to wear hats and turtlenecks and be all sweat-free but the scantily clad women are all shiny like it’s a fucking Britney Spears video? And why is a Britney Spears video breaking out in the middle of this pleasant retro-vibed thing?

It’s a mess.

A good sounding mess.

  1. You don’t call her fat that girl is stacked

    Everything is wide and she walk with much pride

    Also, I noticed that the woman described by the song is in no way physically represented in the video. Subjective terms notwithstanding, of course, but it is a black man singing.

    I think there’s must be a SAG rule that forbids women outside of certain narrow physical parameters from being objectified in music videos. Oh, well. It’s only entertainment, right?

  2. I think the music was great. Too bad that they must have felt the band members weren’t good looking enough to carry the video so they had to bring in sweaty women in short, tight clothes to carry the video – lol. It was funny to watch the women dancing pretty much by themselves – because you know all those women just showed up to be in a music video. They weren’t there for the music or the band.

  3. Uh Sam, Saadiq says the woman is “stacked,” so it appears to me that she is represented. I’m fairly certain that if this video was placed for comment at one of the various gossip blogs about 3/4 of the comments would say that the woman in the black dress is “fat.” Black man singing notwithstanding.

    I thought, in keeping w/ Saadiq’s throwback vibe, that the video’s look is like the clips from old Bandstand videos from the 60’s where women dance around in mini skirts while the musicians wear what they might wear on stage. The woman’s dress is a bit anachronistic, it would probably have resembled the yellow dress worn by one of the extras.

    What is a ‘gossip blog’? From the context of your statements, it sounds like a venue for reinforcing anorexia nervosa.
