There are lots of things in Flexxx's new "Fresh" video that seem vaguely familiar. At parts it resembles the opening titles to a James Bond movie or Atari's Missle Command, and at one point a video girl cleans Flexxx's upturned telescope the same way Beyonce cleans her toy gun in "Video Phone." Still, we're gonna say none of that is nearly as familiar as the distinctly non-patois sounding line "the ladies say they likey, they likey when I ridey," which is almost exactly like a line one of our own editor' may have used in the club already—we're not naming names. We're not mad at the line at all though, especially from Flexxx, who makes it sound like it's coming from the mouth of a '70s porn star (or Barry White) and then sandwiches it with a crisper "Fresh, Fresh." At times the song itself sounds more soul then dancehall, which in the club makes for a nicer "wine" then a "dagger," and more importantly requires nothing if not a better lover.
