Erykah Badu's 'Window Seat' Makes A Naked Statement
Erykah Badu has reminded us of a common trend in her new video “Window Seat.” Artists of all genres have been taking a liking to making a statement on the streets of different cities, starting with clothes on and by the video's end having black censored boxes covering nipples, butts, and, well, you get the point.
Erykah Badu sheds her clothes in "Window Seat" as she walks along a Dallas, Texas, sidewalk until she winds up nude at the site where President Kennedy was assassinated. Suddenly, a shot rings out as the song ends; Badu's head jerks back, and she falls to the ground. Badu states at the beginning of the video that it was inspired by Matt and Kim's music video “Lessons Learned."
Matt and Kim’s video “Lessons Learned” was shot in New York City's Times Square. It shows Matt Johnson and Kim Schifino streaking while walking down Times Square. The band secured permits for the shoot, and many of the people on the street were actors, unlike Erykah Badu’s video “Window Seat,” which was a one-shot whatever happens sort of deal.
I guess you could say the Europeans get straight to the point as these models DON’T waste time taking their clothes off in the dance video “Baby Baby Baby” by Make The Girl Dance. While half this video is in French, it seems to lack the naked statement the other two videos have so emphasized. Then, again, who would ever argue with naked models?
