A few weeks back LOD’s Nick Astro dropped his anticipated “Scarlett Johansson” video and today he releases the footage and recap of how his screening at JGRNAUT went. Nick is slated to be releasing his project LightSkinWitThatAfro soon.
Scarlett Johansson. By the opinions of many men around the world: the sexiest woman on the planet. Which is why you may do a double take at the title of Nick Astro‘s latest visual short film. “Scarlett Johansson” was in fact Astro’s single this time last summer, and one of his top-tier tracks that I mentioned when the trailer premiered not too long ago.
For the video, Nick largely ignores the stereotypical rap video and even the song itself (hence the audio here).
Instead, it’s a 6 minute short film style story where Nick, who self-directed the video, plays a janitor at a photo studio amidst a photoshoot of the striking Jessenia Acevedo, photographed by Kellen Winters (whattup Kels!). The scenes that ensue are one part unexpected and one part hilarious. *Tibs Fav. on the well-executed creativity on display above. Lookout for Nick Astro’s LightSkinWithThatAfro EP with all-new tunes this summer.
And if by chance you feel robbed that the actual Scarlett Johansson is not in the video… umm, here ya go…
