Rejjie Snow ft Animé & Dana Williams 'Egyptian Luvr' by Martin C. Pariseau
The first video from Rejjie Snow's recently released debut album Dear Annie is a parable on the plight of the outsider, the Other in society, given its own distinctive character by director Martin C. Pariseau.
Snow plays an alien, different from earthlings only due to his facial markings, who is making a bid for freedom with his human girlfriend, with the police on his tail. Pariseau, best known for his award-winning video for Kaytranada's Lite Spots a couple of years ago, keeps his focus on the characters rather than overegging the plot. So this feels more like the pre-Spielberg 70s than the 80s and beyond.
There's also room for a cameo by featured artist Animé, performing as he nonchalantly cruises past the escapee alien in a baby-blue convertible, top down.
“In this video I wanted to explore another form,” says Rejjie Snow, who wanted the video to reflect the 70s, as well as exploring the track’s themes of identity. “Space themes shape the album and Martin brought this to life. It felt good to be from another planet for the day.”
