Childish Gambino has definitely got a thing for looking bummed and introspective inside of diners. For his latest music video–which appeared after a mysterious countdown ticker that he tweeted out reached its end–Donald Glover finds himself inside what a source close to Glover (jk) says he is “80 percent sure is the Zankou Chicken on Sunset.” And if you are all like, “But what about the snow?” then all I have to say is #CGI or #ThatMightNotBeZankouChickenAfterAll.
Watch below as a very inebriated Gambino (is it just me or does his “drunk” makeup also make him look like a ghoul from the “Thriller” music video?) tries desperately to woo a beautiful stranger with his lip syncing, magic tricks, and surprisingly coordinated dance steps after such a disastrously tipsy initial approach. Though his love interest isn’t having any of it at first, she finally warms up to his intoxicated charms and humors him with brief dance moves of her own before claiming her meal (from Zankou??) and leaving him sitting in a perimeter booth alone, but not defeated.
What diner/mediocre restaurant do you think Childish should use for his next music video. We vote for Norm’s.
