Considering LL Cool J‘s sex jam “Take It” features the line “It feels like New Year’s, but two balls drop,” we were expecting to see more skin in the music video. Alas, buttressing the shots of LL in front of writhing lady-shadows and an expensive car, we must settle for a loose narrative involving the video’s wardrobe designer fantasizing about LL.
She gets home to do some online shopping (women be shoppin’!), and then cue the Wayne’s World ripple dissolve (seriously, the video employs the wavy-dream transition.) Somewhere in her fantasy, the woman imagines LL Cool J re-creating bits from some of his classic videos, which is…sexy? Watch the love story up top.
