Imagine if you had one of Hip Hop's all time greats featuring on your track, in this case Wu Tang's Ghostface Killah, and wanted to make a video clip for that song. Let's (Ghost)face it, your pockets won't be deep enough to fly an a-list international music celebrity to Australia to shoot a clip with you.
So what do you do? You come up with a storyboard that works without him. And that is incredibly hard to pull off with style. I have seen numerous artists fail at this, just ending up looking desperate or clunky in their attempts to make it work without the celebrity persona in the clip.
The 1200 Techniques' Flow Is Trouble clip is the rare exception. I'm not even going to try to explain why - it just works. And while you keep wondering if the person behind the mask could possibly be Ghostface himself, by the end of it, you won't even care.
It's a well thought out, well shot and edited piece of visual entertainment. Watch it!
