The Roots "Understand" Video
Watch The Roots' new video for "Understand."
The Roots' new album, …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin, began streaming earlier this week ahead of its May 19th release date, and now the group has shared a video from the project. The "Understand" clip features some slick stop-motion animation -- watch it above.
Featuring no actual humans, the video begins with a self-playing organ and goes on to include a shapeshifting clay face, in keeping with the song's subject matter about the mysteriousness of God's face. Elsewhere, a figurine made out of 100 dollar bills runs amok. As stop-motion is one of the most time-consuming methods of filming, the "Understand" video seems liek it was quite an undertaking, but it certainly paid off with a dope, inventive video.
