Watch Childish Gambino Hang Out With a Teddy Bear in the ’3005′ Video
The release of Childish Gambino‘s ‘Because the Internet‘ is around the corner, so of course we’re going to see a bit more of him these next couple of days. The comedian-turned-rapper has just released the video to the album’s single ’3005,’ and despite the upbeat track and romantic hook, we get visually striking yet somber clip.
Childish Gambino spends the video riding a ferris wheel with a live teddy as he raps his verse with a deadpan expressions on his face. “No matter what you say or what you do / When I’m alone, I’d rather be with you / F— these other n—, I’ll be right by your side / ’Til 3005, hol’ up,” the chorus goes as the camera shifts away from the two.
Sadly, the still-animated bear looks ragged as the camera comes back. Forever seems like a long time for this stuffed animal.
The video ends with the bear sitting alone on the ferris wheel in even worse shape with Childish Gambino nowhere to be seen. So much for 3005.
‘Because the Internet’ will officially drop next Tuesday (Dec. 10). Catch the stream here.
