Things in Jamie Foxx's new video "Blame It" that might lead you to believe that it is a parody of R&B music videos, instead of the very real R&B music video that actually is:
1. The dramatic title sequence, which progresses from
before moving on to:
2. The fact that the whole club scene is shot with a red filter.
3. The club's clientele. Including:
4. Jamie Foxx autotuned almost out of existence.
In fact, the overarching message of this video seems to be: ain't no party like a Ron Howard party cause a Ron Howard party don't stop. And why would you want it to stop when this is happening?
Basically, this video is hilarious—a fact that probably isn't lost on anyone except Jamie Foxx. And the VJs at BET.
"If you don't know who Ron Howard is, imdb Ron Howard. These are big dogs!" I can only hope that, moving forward, Ron Howard becomes as ubiquitous in R&B videos as T-Pain.
