Behind The Scenes With El-P On The Set Of The "Full Retard" Video Shoot
Brooklyn-based producer and MC El-P, who we recently interviewed about his album Cancer 4 Cure, premiered the video for his single “The Full Retard” a couple of weeks back. In the video, we follow El-P and his boys, most notably a little furry squirrel puppet, engaged in a host of unsavory activities, tearing around the city in a convertible and pushing the physical limits of everyone involved with a mountain of illicit substances.
Our sister site Noisey produced a behind the scenes video that reveals the filming process through on-set interviews with director Timothy Saccenti, guest star Killer Mike, the binge-drinking squirrel known as Mr. Killums, and El himself. On the set, El-P lets us know that the music video “…covers a lot of the important social issues, like squirrels and the drugs that they do.”
