TV On The Radio’s ‘You’ Video – Tunde Adebimpe’s ‘Prince’ Explained

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!”

TVOTR’s Nine Types of Light is out now.
