Watch Childish Gambino’s Short Film ‘Clapping For The Wrong Reasons’

YouTube

Childish Gambino, aka comedic actor/writer Donald Glover, released the entirety of his new short film, ‘Clapping For The Wrong Reasons,’ and it’s easily one of the weirdest rap-related projects of the summer.

It’s easy to dismiss this piece, which is playing on a continuous Ustream loop, as an attempt at “art” for “art’s sake,” but there’s more to it than that. Sure, it’s pretty bizarre at moments, like when actress Danielle Fishel (aka Topanga from ‘Boy Meets World’) describes a dream while picking lemons. There’s also a strange interaction with friends who get competitive about who’s seen the most vaginas in their life.

For the most part, however, this is just one long preview of what we can expect from Gambino’s next project. You hear a preview of a song with Trinidad Jame$ and, maybe, Chance the Rapper — they also go head to head in a game of Connect Four, which is, just, hilarious. Elsewhere Flying Lotus and Gambino exchange a cappella verses as they recline on a couch.

Basically, you need to watch this if you’re a fan of Childish Gambino’s previous work or even if you’re only slightly interested. So go ahead and check it out below.
