Banky W dropped the video to his single, High Notes (Download Here), yesterday, and after watching it a few times, we’ve decided that we love it. But what do we love about it? We’ll be going into that right about now.
The video was directed by Banky W himself, and was shot on location at the Cantare Restaurant in the Monte Casino, Johannesburg South Africa. It features cameo appearances from Stephanie Coker, Dj Dimples, Praiz, Lynxxx, Shaydee, Lynxxx, Iceberg Slim and Iyanya.
First off, the whole set of the video was A+. The idea of a jazz/live music cafe worked very well especially for the type of song it is. It set a very nice backdrop to a very nice video.
I’m not sure if I’m the only one that peeped that solid silhouette and hat wearing stunt pulled by Banky at the beginning of the video, and immediately thought of Michael Jackson, but yea… I did, and it was pretty dope.
Banky W Can Nae Nae, But Can He Whip?
Now we know that Banky W can Nae-Nae and to a slow tempo song, but a part of me was expecting him to break into the whip. But I’m sure glad he didn’t.
She Can’t Help But Spill…
We know Banky can do a lot of things to the ladies when he wants to, and that includes spilling it all out while fantasizing about Mr Capable, even when the boyfriend is there. Yea… Spilling the Ciroc we mean.
It’s Getting Hot In Here
On one hand, you’d want to assume that this make-out session is all acting, and that’s where it ends. But then watching this again, you feel like there’s no guarantee that this ended when the director yelled “cut.” We’re just saying tho.
Overall it’s a nice video. A very good watch when you get over the somewhat excessive Ciroc brand placement, but we understand though. That’s the business end of it. That wont stop me from watching it over and over, or hitting replay on the song.
