Danger Mouse : Encore
Legendary mash-up - now with visuals…
DM’s marriage of Jay-Z and The Beatles has now moved from mere audio to sumptuous video by lifting huge chunks from The Beatles’ performance from A Hard Days Night and mixing Jay-Z into the fabric of the ancient, monochrome footage. Then it gets really weird. Ringo’s drums turn to decks. John takes off his suit jacket and starts body-popping, Paul and George drop through the floor only to be replaced by shuffle-butt dancers. The absurdity of The Beatles’ lawyers trying to crush something so playfully respectful will astound you. Absolutely brilliant.
