Open Mike Eagle – “Ziggy Starfish (Anti-Anxiety Raps)” Video (Feat. Hannibal Buress) (Stereogum Premiere)
Open Mike Eagle wanders through a seemingly typical club scene in his new video for the Gold Panda-produced “Ziggy Starfish (Anti-Anxiety Raps).” The video follow the lustful encounter of two intoxicated clubbers. It all appears pretty serious until you notice special appearances by Hannibal Buress, Jean Grae, Quelle Chris, and MC Frontalot throughout the video. As the lovers reach for their first embrace, Open Mike Eagle stares directly at them with a blank face. When the couple is feuding, clubbers are blowing bubbles with a dazed Buress watching the bubbles awe. It’s ostensibly a story about star-crossed lovers, but you might not notice due to all these hilarious cameos. Watch director Kris Merc’s video below.
