This week’s music video is Get Back by Ludacris. I like this one because of its deceptive simplicity; the thrust of the song is that he wants people to leave him alone (or to Get Back) and so the video is three minutes of Ludacris using his cartoonish, Popeye-like forearms to make them do so. Also, his decision to replace the traditional hip-hop hoochie dancers with fat women in purple twinsets pleases me.

(Fun piece of trivia: Ludacris’ forearm prosthetics were leftovers from the Hyde costume from the movie League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.)
