The best part of the new video for DJ Khaled & Friends' "Holla At Me" isn't Joe's TV Johnny-supplied PR parade grill, or the sped-up Super-8 shots of cars parking at Carolmart (were we watching the intro to The Ben Stiller Show? 1992 rooolz!), or the continued use of scratchy film stocks and leads throughout, culminating in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it flash of "HEAD" on the screen when Fat Joe talks about how your "baby mom's gonna bless the team" (did y'all notice how dude ad-libs "MWAH!" right afterwards? Clever, that Fat Joe is.) No, the real highlight of "Holla At Me" is that everyone involved is super fat. Mas gordo. It's awesome. Even with Lil Wayne involved! He's probably battling some of the video chicks in waist size, but dude only makes Khaled, Paul, Joe, and FUCKIN ROSS that much more screen-filling. We bet those dudes worked some gefilte fish last night. Mazel tov!

(Also kind of popping right now: the clip of TI performing with a live band on Jimmmy Kimmel. Like Weezy, Clifford Harris could use a burger or two, but him and DJ Drama and Travis Barker look like they're having a lot of fun playing "What You Know".)
