So the Queen of Bacchanal Destra Garcia brought out the music video for her popular groovy soca tune ‘Lucy’ a few days ago. Good timing since she’s performing in the International Soca Monarch semis taking place today and what better way to put the song in our heads than with a music video?
Especially this music video. The vid which is a full animated piece, is a little NSFW so yuh might need to take a peek around before you watch it or better yet, watch it at home.
Just don’t make the mistake I did and try to watch it when your little one’s around. It all started well and good but when de animated bumper started rolling, I literally jumped and clapped my hand across her eyes. Woiiiee! I wasn’t ready.
There’s nuff bumper in this music video. And since we’re from the Caribbean and we adore, venerate, idolise bumper, you know I have to be talking about nuff, NUFF bumper.
It was almost as if when the animators couldn’t think of another scene to add, they just went “you know what this needs? MORE bumper!”
There’s bumpers spinning, dropping, shaking. There’s bumpers lined up in rows and arranged in circles and even in a star design. Yup. It is an homage to bumper.
Take a look for yourself.
