This Fan Theory On The Feels Like Summer Video By Childish Gambino Is A Total Mindfuck
Childish Did It Again!
The Childish Gambino Feels Like Summer Video Theory You Haven’t Thought Of
The new Feels Like Summer video by Childish Gambino caused quite an earthquake in the Hip Hop world recently (but what’s new for Childish). Through a powerful cartoon animation including most of your favorite Hip Hop artists, Childish produces a piece of art full of key moments and question marks.
Childish Gambino is on the run again with another thoughtful and impactful visual experience. This time around, he made it as a retro cartoon featuring rappers from the old and the new generation such as Soulja Boy, Drake, Lil Pump, Diddy, Jay-Z, Wiz Khalifa, J Cole and even MAGA-hat-Kanye-West.
Pretty loaded right?! That’s once again the genius in Childish’s approach. Too much is going on, a lot of imagery is hidden in the different scenes and then the viewer is left with a HUGE question mark on his face.
I was very curious about the meaning behind the Feels Like Summer video so I went to the only place where I could get answers: My Facebook Feed!
I’ve stumbled upon a Hip Hop fan/library-on-two-feet fan callled Phil Vidican who broke down the whole thing for us. By the way, this might be the only quote unquote conspiracy theory to actually make sense EVER.
He started off with …
So far I’ve missed the Jaden part, I didn’t see all the Migos at all and where was 21 savage?! Are you following so far? Here’s the next part
As a disclaimer (and to make sure the Beyhive don’t strangle us) we didn’t get the ”R.I.P Fredo” part neither. The Soulja Boy analysis was a 100% accurate because who on God’s green earth haven’t seen the now infamous ”Soulja Boy Challenge” testimony. Here’s the next part:
before you jump out the window, the Janelle Monae and skateboards comparison was FAR from reaching. We recently had a debate about Chris Brown‘s career and how domestic violence been the chip on his shoulder since forever (as it should of course but…). Here’s the last part:
I think it pretty much covers everything that went down in the Feels Like Summer video. Of course Childish Gambino plays the ”Figure Out For Yourself” card whenever we ask him about the meaning behind his art.
Do you think this interpretation is valid? What did YOU see in this video that this fan might have missed?
Of course also there must be a THOUSAND other interpretations of what this video actually means and that’s the beauty of it. Donald Glover/Childish Gambino found a pocket that no one was filling in the game.
Art that makes you think, hold conversations and scream at the top of your lungs when you feel like you have the right answer. This is what art should be about nah?!
