Big Sean and Kanye West Bring a Pinup Calendar to Life in the “Marvin Gaye and Chardonnay” Video


The up-from-the-mixtape-depths MC Big Sean‘s sexytime summer jam “Marvin Gaye and Chardonnay” now has a Hype Williams-directed video, one in which Sean and his hip-hop patron Kanye West mug for the camera in front of brightly hued walls while women who might very well have been plucked from pinup calendars printed on super-glossy paper vamp around them. It all looks not dissimilar to the Williams-lensed clip for Lady Gaga and Beyoncé’s “Video Phone,” except with more stuttery edits, which, admittedly, pair well with the back-and-forth squeaks that provide the song’s rhythm. Clip below.

(Also, note that though the lyrical shout-outs are to wine, the only bottle being waved around is one of Grey Goose. I guess these guys save the vino for their softer moments? Or is it a “not sure if the brand is impressive enough” sort of thing? Guys, I can help out! Really!)
