In between takes of his “Give It 2 U” video, Robin Thicke described the scene in one sentence. “It’s a Diane Martel dream, and I’m just happy to be here,” he said. Director Martel, of Thicke’s VMA-nominated “Blurred Lines” and Miley Cyrus‘ “We Can’t Stop,” has created a clip equally as wild and tasteless, only it features Thicke’s son and an ass float.
Thicke stars as a referee-turned-halftime performer, riding shirtless on a mini-monster truck. (Kendrick Lamar rides with his shirt on.) His son Julian Fuego, also suited up, dances before he announces 2 Chainz, who yells his verse as an ass float — half black, half white, because diversity counts for something — slowly pulls up behind him. Fuego’s presence begs so many questions — mainly, whether this toddler knows 2 Chainz better than Sophia Grace and Rosie.
Meanwhile, among the all-female football players and cheerleaders (of course), this video features more props than any other that Martel directed this year: confetti, a flared dress of cotton candy, posterboard signs with crude drawings of Thicke himself, the cardboard cutout crowd and a life-sized bottle and wad of $100 bills as mascots. Oh, and a huge spoon. Possibly for another form of recreation. (2 CHAINZ.)
Whew. Watch the “Give It 2 U” clip up top.
