-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.
