Childish Gambino drops sleek 'Sober' video

Posted on

Childish Gambino

Blog-rap sensation Childish Gambino has dropped a new video for “Sober,” the opening track off his 2014 Kauai EP. Set in a nearly-empty diner late at night, the video features an admittedly high Donald Glover as he busts out some stellar dance moves to court a girl he spots across the joint.

But the half-cornball, half-banger track isn’t the highlight. That has to go to Glover’s dancing, and specifically the way director Hiro Murai captures it. And if the style looks familiar, you aren’t crazy: Murai directed last year’s brilliant video for the Kendrick Lamar-featuring Flying Lotus cut “Never Catch Me.”
