Childish Gambino f/ Problem “Sweatpants”

It was going to be hard to outdo the excellent fan-made video for “Sweatpants” that commemorated Donald Glover‘s time on Community, but Childish Gambino did just that with the official new release of his Because The Internet standout above.

Why?

Because as I was watching it, I was hoping for it… wait a minute… this is a one-take video!

Just as Gambino made a splash with the “Freaks & Geeks” video being shot in one-take, he takes things to another level with “Sweatpants”. The video is a series of scenes in a diner with Gambino walking in and out and the entire cast of extras having to nail their parts on the first-take too. I love how this progresses with, well, I actually don’t want to spoil it. Watch above!

*Tibs Fav.

Lastly, I gotta emphasize that I love one-take videos. Yet they’re so rare that Gambino now has the unofficial lead amongst artists with 2. Both of his are that fantastic that, why not? Here’s the “Freaks & Geeks” video as a little throwback below.
