Hello, Childish Gambino Just Dropped The Music Video Of The Year

Share

In a hilarious cut for time short, Donald Glover and "the other Cavaliers" declared that they're there for "whatever LeBron needs".

Last night Donald Glover hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time, and he devoted his monologue to letting the audience know he auditioned for the iconic sketch show- twice- only to be rejected- twice. Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25th.

There's a lot going on in the background, but very much in the foreground is the moment Glover carefully handles a rifle like it's porcelain, steps in front of and shoots down a gospel choir, appearing to reference the 2015 Emanuel AME massacre in downtown Charleston.

The video is certainly intriguing and reflects upon what America seems to be experiencing in increased amounts in recent years such as police brutality, gun violence and the influence pop culture has on society. The accompanying music video for the more serious "This Is America" dropped online shortly before the episode aired.

The four-minute clip created for Glover's hip-hop alter ego Childish Gambino is directed by Hiro Murai - a filmmaker who has also worked with Glover on his television series Atlanta.

Trump lawyer Giuliani does not rule out payments to other women
Trump said Friday that Giuliani needed to "get his facts straight" but insisted they weren't changing their story. She has also filed defamation suits against Trump and his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, who paid her the money.

Murders occur, but the guns are treated more delicately than human lives in the video - a strong statement given the current debate over gun control.

One can also make the assumption that Glover's character is being chased because he murdered 11 people over the course of the video.

Glover, 34, said it himself during his opening monologue on "SNL".

Obviously, the liberal media thinks the whole thing is genius and has "LAYERS" of deep thoughts that need to be analyzed and thought over before viewers can fully understand and appreciate the profound brilliance of the message portrayed in this music video. While some may call him a triple threat - as an actor, writer and singer - he considers himself "just a threat". After being introduced by Zoe Kravitz, who casually held a red cup before she joined the party on stage, Childish debuted a new song, "Saturday".
