Aesop Rock – “Kirby” (Video)

“Heyyyyyyyyy Kirby. What ya doing there?”

I’m not sure how many emcees can turn a song about cat into something so enjoyable, but Aesop Rock went a step farther and turned it into a clever video. With a puppet and Kirby? Well, technically, Kirby was played by Dina, a rescued cat from Los Angeles. The video was directed by Toben Seymour. Cop The Impossible Kid here.
