Major Lazer and Nicki Minaj's Run Up music video is all about twerking in a smartphone-obssesed world
If you are at all into hip-hop besides smartphones, please pause the new Kendrick Lamar record for a bit and check out whats's going on in Major Lazer and Nicki Minaj's video for 'Run Up'. Hip-hop the song is not, but the video is all about smartphone obsession wrecking up the party of a lifetime, complete with a (fake) pause to buffer the video stream and Minaj delivering a verse through FaceTime. It's like the video is based on actual events or something!
At least one of the party goers is probably thinking about the upcoming Android 7.1.1 Nougat for his phone while enjoying himself. Another is probably googling Galaxy Note 8 concept images to stay on top of things. Clearly, the video succeeds in capturing the current status quo, which is mostly about selfies, Snapchats, and people going to clubs to check their phones. We are all guilty!
Laugh it up with the video and send it to your friends instead of the dank memes you lined up before reading the article.
