-Music Videos on my Mind- The Bullitts’ “Supercool”


If there's one thing about life in London that is hard to deal with, it's the number of crazy people walking the streets, unmonitored. Some of these crazy people can be downright scary, while some others are ludicrously entertaining enough to even charm the socks off Hollywood starlets like Rosario Dawson.

Jeymes Samuel's British dance project known as The Bullitts is an intriguing concept that has somehow managed to rope in the services of celebrity figures like Rosario Dawson, Idris Elba, Mos Def, Tori Amos and Lucy Liu, all this despite The Bullitts having only relatively diminutive transatlantic popularity.

Notwithstanding the enjoyably vérité nature of the Supercool music video, it's obvious the whole thing is staged to a tee. What makes the video work though is Rosario Dawson's game attitude. She elevates the premise of Supercool, bettering the concept and sound through her brilliant reactions.

Supercool is destined to become a viral classic and deservedly so, even if one has to admit the actual music is pretty pedestrian to say the least.

  1. Ok. This video has renewed my faith in mankind. This has turned my "suspension of disbelief" into a giggling mess of curls. I love this video!

    Heck, I might even be willing to pay the electric bill for those kids in the abandoned house next month...

  3. Love it, he went for 'The Crane', lol. Where's Rosario been all this time?

    re: Metallics... Ha! I was thinking that with one round-house kick-back-kick to the head in the studded/spiked Loubs would A) leave a bloody mess in someones head & B) scare the nuts off any other potential muggers! Always good to have some finger armoury too, no? One punch and lights out, no need for knuckle dusters.

  4. Cute. Something a little bit different, not to say that it was the BEST, but, the 'best' is bullshit anyways. :) Nice share.

  6. May I simply just say what a comfort to uncover a person that actually understands what they are discussing online.
    You certainly understand how to bring an issue
    to light and make it important. A lot more people should look at this and
    understand this side of your story. I can't believe you aren't more popular given that you certainly possess the gift.
