Video of the Month. Part2. Drop.

when Spike Jonze was forging his name deep in the 90's video scene, & shortly after he sabotaged people's attention, he Dropped this imaginative gem for The Pharcyde. He rewound this concept to continue the themes of their previous album, one of my desert island discs, to offer folk a Bizarre Ride to the Far Side of his mind, taking a cue from the reversed beat to one of the most well known backward videos of all time. [& respect to Blowing Dirt by Goodshirt, Joe Lonie's thoughtful reversed local video] Below, Drop is bizarre & quite simple in performance, since watching these Pharcyde MCs walk & talk in reverse is straight up hypnotic.
