If you’ve ever been to see the Minneapolis underground rap duo Atmosphere — and you should; they’re a good show — you know that the line outside the club is a hotbed of a very specific kind of enthusiastic dorkery. That line is where the duo filmed its new video for “Fortunate,” from the recent album Southsiders. Directors Dan Monick and Vanessa Joy Smith film group members Slug and Ant as they amble, in bewildered slow-motion, alongside the many, many kids lined up to see them. Slug keeps his expression studiously blank and accepts random-ass gifts from the audience, and the kids’ faces when they realize what’s happening are pretty great. Watch it below.
