David Knight - 24th May 2017

Admittedly we've come rather late to this. So it's about time we acknowledged the tour de force and all-round phenomenon that is the video for Lil Dicky's Pillow Talking.

Directed by Tony Yacenda, regular collaborator of comedian/rapper Dave Burd (aka Lil Dicky), this is a ten-plus minute visualising of the track which charts a casual sexual encounter between Burd and a girl (played by Taylor Misiak), from the realistically ungainly sex itself, to the breakdown of relations between the two, once their wildly divergent views of the world (from extraterrestial life to religion to food), have been aired.

And although it all happens in the bedroom, this involves appearances by dinosaurs, John C Reilly as God, wolves and Lil Dicky's Brain. And Brain needs a poop.
