    Excellent production great choreography, although not as great choreography as the recent routine Cardi B's dancers did on SNL that was astounding.

    Interesting imagery. Shame that it looks like it was filmed on a cell phone.

    The early part was jarring for me after watching him perform the song on SNL earlier. I think I watched it at half a dozen times late that night. Took the third viewing before I noticed the some background actions.

    I'm looking forward to addition videos that I think will be linked/chained to this one.

    Dumb *** has a movie coming out in a couple of weeks and this will be a PR nightmare for Disney.

    Bravo idiot.

    Give it a couple of days he’ll be singing a different tune after that video. Disney just lost $100 million or more on the Solo movie.

    The song hit #1 on itunes after SNL, you clearly have no clue what you're talking about. The same ones that pushed it to #1 are the same ones that will be the main audience for Solo.

    LOL. Solo isn’t Black Panther.

    Kaepernick was cool for about a week.

    Never claimed anything of the sort, that in no way changes the fact that a large portion of the target audience for Solo is the same ones that listen to Childish Gambino. There is no basis to your claim that this will hurt movie sales.

    If the movie has poor sales, it will be because the movie sucks and reviews will reflect that. If anything I'm betting this video will help push sales with people wanting to see Glover in it. The video has been out for 2 days and already has close to 30 million views.

    And his performance on SNL before the video's release probably already increased the audience for SOLO. If anything, this video and the mostly positive responses will get more butts in seats opening weekend.

    That was one of the best music videos I've seen in a long while.

    How about political commentary, because that's what it is.

    I love it. But not through music. For some reason, I'm totally opaque to music and I just don't get music videos (or metaphors, for that matter).

    Cribbed from the YT video comments. Dunno why #10 is missing, poster probably mislabeled them.

    Are you insinuating that Disney didn't know that Donald Glover is also Childish Gambino? Seems like they would know what kind of music he makes along with the kinds of shows he makes (Atlanta). If they were not comfortable with that kind of exposure, maybe they shouldn't have hired him for Solo?

    Ding ding ding...Disney knew exactly who they were working with and the type of work he does. Glover is on fire right now.

    He should have waited a few weeks. Instead he’s chosen to make himself the center of attention.

    Both the track and video is good.

    Kanye take notes, and make another album with the title related to college again.
