David Knight - 30th Apr 2019

Andreas Nilsson comes out of music video retirement for his old pal 2 Chainz...

And a very Nilsson-esque tableau of fruity characters, and surreal visual gags it is too, as 2 Chainz demonstrates that he's "rare, as a 2 Dolla Bill", delivered throughout, with a silk scarf on his head. And he gets sterling support from Lil Wayne (undergoing surreal surgery), and E40. you know you would have some good fun with those guys.

VMA-winning VFX company Timber applied their visual effects and postproduction magic to the piece, while artists at  collaborating company Kevin provided 2D viz effects for the video.
