“Tightrope” by Janelle Monae. Directed by Wendy Morgan.
Watch the video below!
love the dancing and the last couple minutes, especially the “moving through the wall effect”
nice groove to start the day with. thanks, man!
the big boi part reminds me how much i want another outkast album
wouldn’t that be sweet!
i’d love to have a pair of those cool dancing shoes and slide for fun.
regular walking is for suckers!
thank you! I knew I wasn’t the only one!
dear Andre 3000 and Big Boi,
please get your shit together and do another album.
Not so secret crush on Janelle Monae. Shutter Island + Foot Loose + vintage Soul Train + robots + Outkast doesn’t make any sense at all, but somehow makes perfect sense.
not unlike your artwork! wonderfully absurd
now that you mentioned it, i checked out scott’s website. i love your artwork and concept behind it, scott, and the website is great, btw. i like the astronaut character and the fact that he never takes his helmet off, as if he couldn’t trust the air. very cool.
<3 those shoes
love the shoes too!
Seriously, nice groove and dance. the way she moves and dances is fresh and original currently. We see so much pretty girls dancing always with the same style!
Interesting video too, like the grading and atmosphere, the is something reminding me The Noisettes” Never forget you…
Thanks for this

i am hopelessly addicted to this song/video.
can anyone point me to the reason why we are seeing sooo many instances of this mirror masked cowl thing? In the past 3 months, 3 videos all with the same gag, Yeasayer, Dead Weather, and now this? It’s almost laughable at this point, its a good looking gag, i’m just trying to figure out where this meme came from.
its from a 1940s film by maya deren called ‘meshes of the afternoon’ – not sure why so many are referencing it now
I’m really digging this video! I’m gonna be tightropin’ it all over the place. I think Janelle is very underrated and has the potential to be an icon so I don’t mind her black and white suits. Just pay attention to the music, it’s great!
