One of the best examples of stop-motion animation used in a video has to be Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer," but that was all the way back in 1986. The video for T-Pain and Rick Ross' "Rap Song" features every subject in the video frozen in time in a club that I'm imagining is a circle of hell that Dante just refused to include in his Inferno. Sure, the song's title is hopelessly generic, which has to make sense to someone somewhere, but I must say that after watching it the whole way through, this is the only time I have actually
wanted needed Rick Ross to save me from whatever I was hearing. Did I mention there's a goat head involved? Press play. You know you want to.
