“Shimmy Shimmy yeah, shimmy yo shimmy Q”…Jason Goldwatch blesses us with some hypnotic visuals for “Flight Confirmation”, the lead single off The Aclhemist’s freshly released third album, Russian Roulette featuring Black Hippy colonel Schoolboy Q and Detroit’s very own Danny Brown. It resonates deeply within popular internet culture, as it is composed entirely of GIFs, which have become an online phenomenon over the past few years, with entire web pages and tumblrs dedicated exclusively to them.
“I think it’s interesting ALC and I are digging samples together in the new era of web digging….. Image digging and new cultural references. This is post modern porn.” – Jason Goldwatch
The GIFs in the video are as nutty as the characters showcased, and as crazy as some of them look, they’re not groslly exaggerated (i.e- Danny Brown…) Depending how how deep you want to get lost, blinking is optional. Just board the plane, and take off, and enjoy the trip. And just for you, exclusively from Mass Appeal, a collection of actual GIFs created and used by Goldwatch in the video below.
