With a natural melodic ability and a fast-paced flow, DC The Don prides himself on standing out from the pack. Dressing up as one of film’s most famous outsiders, DC The Don gets his Napoleon Dynamite on in “Worst Day ):,” his new video.
Produced by Astroboy and Theo Zim, “Worst Day ):” is a product of DC’s exquisite ear for beats, as he molds his flow around 8-bit piano arpeggios and soulful vocal samples that could easily fit in an 80s arcade game.
Directed by OUTLAW of Guapruns Productions, the video is a loving tribute to the 2004 cult classic, sketching an outline of the film’s plot with DC portraying Napoleon and successfully capturing the original’s color scheme and aesthetic. The video provides a twist on some of the film’s most memorable moments, including football tosses with Uncle Rico, Pedro’s presidential campaign, and the closing talent show dance performance.
“Worst Day ):” is a new song from Come As You Are (Deluxe), the recently-released expanded edition of DC’s debut album.
