Childish Gambino – Clapping for the Wrong Reasons [Director's Cut]
August 16th, 2013
I don’t know what it is about this short but it’s dope as hell to me. It’s a day in the life of Donald Glover, a.k.a. Childish Gambino. It has some special guest appearances like Trinidad James and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) and pornographic actress, Abella Anderson. (Don’t ask me how I knew that.)
Sidenote: Be prepared to be freaked out around the 17:15 mark. In the YouTube comments, someone wrote the following which makes sense if that is what he was trying to symbolize.
When a man bought his own freedom he would show off his freedom and his new found “wealth” by showing how many gold teeth he could buy.
Later on it became a status symbol of gambling men, bootleggers, musicians or any black person that didnt work for white people anymore. All this changed in the late 70s & early 80s when it became connected to drug dealers, robbers, & gangsters in the 90s to the present it is now worn as fashion & many people dont know its true history so they make fun of it.
Lastly: Around the 20:18…PAUSE!
