Friday Face-Offs: Ignition (Remix) - 3rd Place



3:05 PM, 10/10/08

Are you ready to be in a good mood?

When I first read the youtube user’s description of this video:

“Dropped a bomb signing on R. Kelly’s Ignition Remix!!”

I thought I saw a typo. It took me a minute to realize: no typo.

THEN. I. GOT. SAD.

(By the way, this video has some intense, mystifying cutaway shots that make me love it more and more each time I watch it. Hello, 0:58!!!)

BUT THE IMPORTANT THING ABOUT THIS VIDEO IS:

Sometimes I watch this video and focus on the guy in front, to see how R. Kelly is translated into his language (answer: soooooo smoothly). But sometimes, I focus on the guy in the back. And when I do that, I FEEL STRONG JOY.

Could that guy be jamming any harder? I would say that from 2:52 - end, he is manifesting pure light.

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME WITH HOW HARD HE’S JAMMING AT THE END???

Bonus points for the ending! LOL, can’t believe you got David Chase to direct your video!

Goddamm, I think I discovered a straight-up classic ass-banger with this one. Fifty thousand gold stars.
