Although the song has been out for what seems like forever, I was only able to see the video for the Black Eyed Peas song, “I Gotta Feeling” a few weeks ago. My first reaction was that it looked like alot of fun to shoot. My second reaction came about 3 minutes in when I saw the final setup. Somehow, the directors, producers and talent thought it would be a good idea to paint the eyes and lips of their frontmen in glow in the dark paint and turn off the lights.
I’m pretty sure this is blackface.
That’s not to say that it was a good idea even with the lights on.
Or that he wasn’t shuckin’ and jivin’ before he got the paint out.
It’s sad to see what has become of the Black Eyed Peas since the days of Joints and Jams.
Coonin’ in the club.
