Radical Friend Yeasayer Homage in Janelle Monae’s video?!?

Maybe I’m just seeing things, but check out this Janelle Monae video!  They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Could it be there’s a distinct homage to Yeasayer’s Ambling Alp, directed by Radical Friend and edited by yours truly?!?  You be the judge.

(Note: JUST AN EXCUSE to publish this awesome Janelle Monae video.  You know what I can’t do?  Dance like the people in this video.  Although I wish I could.)

    1. Good call on the imitation.
    2. I prefer people romping in the landscape to people dancing in a mental asylum, but I love the hairdos.
    3. In my opinion, dancing is a matter of enthusiasm and energy, not talent.

    They’re both references to the short film “Meshes of an Afternoon”
