The latest Tyler, The Creator video is predictable only in its inflammatory-ness. It's just more lurid and deliberately bad-taste than ever. In the Buffalo video (directed as ever by himself, as Wolf Haley) he's a lynching victim painted white, being pursued (in cartoon fashion) by an angry mob - of African-Americans. Beat that.

And then, in the now familiar Tyler/Wolf Haley style, it all changes. A different song, Find Your Wings (also from the latest album Cherry Bomb), in the same video, and a very chilled studio performance. Naturally, Tyler still can't play it straight here either.
