DJ Shadow's "Rocket Fuel" Video Has Astronauts Brawling in Space
Watch the clip for the De La Soul-assisted track now
Published Nov 14, 2019DJ Shadow's new album Our Pathetic Age arrives tomorrow (February 15), and the producer has rolled out a new video for the De La Soul-assisted single "Rocket Fuel."
Directed by Sam Pilling, the video is something of a spiritual successor to Shadow's clip for "Nobody Speak" (also directed by Pilling), in which stuffy-looking diplomats brawl one another at the UN.
This time around, Pilling has set Shadow's music to "a chaotic re-imagining of man's first steps on the moon." Playing on the conspiracy theory that the entire moon landing was a hoax, the two brave astronauts on the "mission" soon engage in an out-of-this-world wire fighting sequence.
Our Pathetic Age arrives tomorrow and also features Nas, Pharoahe Monch, Inspectah Deck, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon and more.
