2 Chainz Pays Homage to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” in His “Freebase” Video

In the video for the title track from his Freebase EP, 2 Chainz is paying homage to one of the all-time greatest videos: Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”. Yes, Chainz wears the red leather jacket (which is referenced, you may recall, in “Feds Watching”).

It’s a largely faithful homage: He’s watching a horror movie with a woman in a poodle skirt, the horror comes to the real world, he turns into a zombie, and he dances (sort of). Sadly, there’s no freeze frame at the end where 2 Chainz has werewolf eyes. Regardless, this is essential viewing, so watch it below courtesy of WorldStarHipHop (via The Fader).
