Teenage Fan Club & De La Soul- Fallin'

How is it that the coolest song, from one of the coolest movies, can have such a shitty video?



Judgment Night is one of the best films ever made, and this is the best they could come up with? I'm not in favor of capital punishment, but whoever produced this needs to shot.

In 1992, one year before Judgment Night was released, a low-budget film starring Lawrence Fishburne- Deep Cover hit the theaters, and was made popular mostly because of the title track of the same name.

Watch this classic video:



This song became a gangsta rap anthem, and propelled Snoop Dog and Dr. Dre to superstardom.

You don't see a bunch of brats prancing around clouds wearing angel wings, and you do not see a wannabe Speech trying to teach a class.

Deep Cover is about a bunch of hard-core bangin' muthafuckaz, and you get a video about a bunch if hard-core bangin' muthafuckaz.

Why couldn't the fag that produced the Fallin' video understand the context of the seminal song of the movie, and produce an appropriate video? Seriously, I'm surprised that Dennis Leary or Cuba Gooding didn't smoke somebody over this.
