“Birthday Song”

All right, I’ll admit it. Even if Based on a T.R.U. Story was a largely underwhelming piece of work, the music video for “Birthday Song” is pretty great. It’s like Where’s Waldo, except instead of looking for a dude in the middle of a crowd full of people doing ridiculous things, you have to try and spot 2 Chainz amid a crazy, sort of unsettling birthday party with people doing drugs on a scantily-clad woman’s back, lap dances right by the grill in the backyard, and a birthday cake shaped like a woman’s rear end. Oh, and Kanye West rides in a chariot festooned with mammaries. So yeah, this is pretty redemptive and damn fun to watch.
