Today, I’d hoped to get back to my comics on the music of naughty aughties, but my e-book had other plans. In the meantime, enjoy Usher rendered in glorious, cross-stitch form.
I’ll keep this brief, but I did want to take a sec to deconstruct the video for “U Remind Me” – one of the hit singles off 8701:
The three best things about this video:
- The asymmetrical top that the love interest wears in the opening scene at the mall (starting at 0:11) – 16-year old me would’ve killed for a top like that…
- 2:54, in which Usher concludes an otherwise epic dance sequence with an awkward heel click into his Lamborghini. I think I’ve seen that clip rendered into GIF form.
- The pants that Usher wears in the final club scene – on full display at 3:16.
