“Blackstreet - No Diggity” (1996)
Friday is a day for the jams, you know it, I know it, everybody does, and what better jam than this? Unparalleled funkyness, yeah, i made that up, i know, but it’s undeniable. The clip was directed by Hype Williams, and it’s pretty standard fare for 90s r&b, but there are a couple of oddball moments.
First and foremost there’s the bobblehead dolls inserts: that was totally uncalled for, not to mention slightly creepy, and ugly. Second of all, the band wears overalls like 90 percent of the screen time, there’s the classic blue denim with wifebeaters and also a white on black variant. Seriously, this may be the only clip ever with a wardrobe change between different sets of overalls. Third, you know this video is pretty old when Dre makes a cameo rapping in an Emmitt Smith cowboys jersey. That’s the 90s for ya.
