Spike Jonze's Hip-Hop Masterpiece: What's Up Fatlip?

With all the buzz over the upcoming Jonze-directed video for Jay and Kanye's "Otis," I thought I'd share my own favorite Jonze video. Actually - it's my favorite video ever.

The Pharcyde had dissolved by the time Fatlip cut this track, and it lived as a one-off single for years before Lip got it together to actually cut a whole record. I don't think the pathetic tone was manufactured or satirical, though Fatlip has always been a funny guy. It's a remarkable inversion of hip-hop aesthetics, and it's hilarious and touching at the same time.

Now that I've seen this, it's going to be tough to accept videos that don't have any SPACE INDIANS in them.
