This video first popped up two days ago, then disappeared again. Now it’s here to stay. It’s for the new single by Aloe Blacc, a name even your mother is familiar by now, thanks to the success of last year’s I Need A Dollar.
The video was directed by regular Stones Throw collaborator Ross Harris, the little dancer is Baby Bogaloo.
