Slug and Ant (Atmosphere) are back on the visual tip with the premiere of their new fan-made video for “Ain’t Nobody” off of their 2011 The Family Sign album. It features two black skateboarding friends that get tailed throughout their normal day by an abstract pair of white sanitized muses. Metaphors anyone? Judging by the obvious vacant beauty in both girls, we’re going to go ahead and peg the inspiration to OG Robert Palmer’s landmark music video “Addicted To Love.” Remember those weird gals?
This video starts off with a skateboard session and then they’re on to the bowling alley all while the muses perform all sorts suggestive and choreographed moves. Then it’s on to some NSFW-looking pinball followed by a return to their apartment where the brothers kick back for a therapeutic smoke all while the models finally get close enough for a closing feel at the end of the piece.
The more-than-two-decades-deep hip hop duo out of Minneapolis is headlining this year’s Soundset Music Festival happening this coming Sunday (May 26th) in Shakopee, MN. They’ll be leading the charge alongside acts like Snoop Dogg, Tech N9ne, Brother Ali, Aesop Rock and more.
