Nicki Minaj and Will.I.Am are paying tribute to futuristic Japanese culture in the video for “Check It Out.”
Apparently, Japanese variety shows will be deceptively minimalistic in the not-too-distant future…or at least that’s the vision for “Check It Out.”
The clip starts with Nicki and Will’s song blasting through the speakers of a boombox. The pair go from phoning in their performance for a supremely uninterested audience to pulling off some tricks and stunts that would wow most people.
