Video: Childish Gambino – “Clapping For the Wrong Reasons” Feat. Flying lotus, Chance The Rapper, Trinidad Jame$ & more.

After teasing at such a project several weeks back  we now have the director’s cut of Childish Gambino’s 24-minute short film titled “Clapping For The Wrong Reasons” The short features  Donald himself, Chance The Rapper, Flying Lotus, Trinidad Jame$, and several other Gambino collaborators and friends . The film falls someplace in-between truth and fiction it would seem with parts functioning as a preview of sorts to new Gambino music while other moments seem to focus on scripted narrative about life, relationships, dreams and more. Things get pretty strange during the last third when Gambino pulls a tooth out of his nostril in a scene that wouldn't be out of place in a horror film. Weird stuff but well worth the watch if you are a fan and another interesting chapter from Glover’s creative repertoire.

Directed by Hiro Murai.
