Kool A.D.'s "Hickory" is a contender for dopest music video of the year.
By dropping the "Hickory" visuals today, Kool A.D. has now released a video for all eleven songs off his album Word O.K. And not only is it easily the coolest vid off album, it's a frontrunner for video of the year.
At 24 watercolors per second, "Hickory" is an explosion of color and positivity, and is somewhat reminiscent of the epic Breakbout video "Baby I'm Yours." Bonus: the song also kick ass.
Shoutout for the Peruvian art collective Youth Experimental Studio for making this video -- it is truly inspiring, a testament to the power of collaboration and painstaking hard work. Check out more of their work here. And check out the rest of the videos from Word O.K. below:
