Director Barney Clay breaks down TV on the Radio’s  gleefully genius “You” video to Pitchfork.  Apparently, gawkers at Coney Island – where part of the clip was filmed – missed the point of vocalist Tunde Adebimpe’s turn as a puffy-shirt-sporting, dove-freeing vagabond.From Pitchfork:

BC: Well, what I’ve learned from this shoot is that Tunde dressed as Prince looks like Rick James. Everyone was like, “Hey, it’s Rick James!” It’s like, “No, it’s Prince!”
