I remember the first time that I saw this video. It was in a TV Crit course I took as an undergraduate, and a fellow classmate showed it as an illustration of her presentation (of course, by this point I forget completely what her presentation was about). Nevertheless, she showed this video and I was kind of taken aback. I imagine I had heard "Ms. Jackson" and "So Fresh and So Clean" by this point, but I don't think that I had any concept of who Outkast was and what they were about. So this was my first real awareness of the group. I remember having a similar reaction to this as I did to Cee-Lo's "Closet Freak" video - "It's kind of like P-Funk for the new millenium." I've also been listening to Stankonia a lot this week, so I've got Outkast on the mind. Anywho, have a funky weekend, keep it on the One.
