Flashback Friday – Patente Di Guida edition - Jay-Z - "Show Me What You Got"

Remember when Jay-Z said he was going to retire? This was his first single back. I recognized the sax intro from that Teddy Riley song from the 90s and the P.E. song from the 80s.

This video cracked me up. I wish I could have been in the pitch meeting. "So look Jay-Z, I'm thinking Monte Carlo, you, Danica Patrick and Dale Earnhardt Jr."

I cannot think of a more random grouping in a hip/hop video. Love it.

I look forward to the day I can drive standard on a road with hairpin turns and not freak out. I would also like to drive a one of the sporty Italian cars in the video. Looks like fun. I don't want to own one...not my style but maybe I could test drive one.

Have a great weekend.

Ha! I love thinking of how that pitch would go too! Nice tie in flash-back for the week of driver's license news...

Ah yes...Jay-Z retiring. So funny. But at least when he came back his shit was banging. Unlike other folks who come out of retirement. *I'm looking at you Brett Farve. Sit down!*

This video makes me laugh. So random.

I used to read your blog everyday from the office - now it's BLOCKED, so that's why I haven't been around much lately. Congrats on getting your lisence, I STILL haven't got round to doing it (after I'm ashamed to say how many years) - but I will, you have inspired me!

erin - I'm curious to know what the budget was for this video.

gibber - ha, poor Brett.

joanne - grazie!!! My blog has little to no adult content. I wonder why it's blocked?
