Childish Gambino Releases ‘Sweatpants’ Video, Calls Out Record Label for ‘Lies’

Subscribe to TheBoombox on

Childish Gambino is seeing double in his new video for ‘Sweatpants,’ which is from his latest LP, ‘Because the Internet.’ The clip feels like a mixture of ‘Groundhog Day‘ and the ‘Twilight Zone.’

In the visual, directed by Hiro Murai, we see Gambino going into a diner to have a quick meal with friends. When he leaves the eatery through the back door and returns to the front door, he slowly notices that the patrons inside are being replaced by Glover clones. After the third go-around the entire diner is filled with Childish Gambinos or are they Donald Glovers? Who knows?

At the end of the video, the rapper croons a song with several dancers behind him.

Granted, it’s a bizarre video but nothing out of the ordinary for the Bino.

However, on Twitter, the ‘3005’ rapper slammed his record label, Glassnote Records, for their botched the promotion of the clip. It looks like Gambino also threw Iggy Azalea under the bus during his 140-character tirade.
