Video: Joy Orbison, “BRKLYN CLLN”

We were in a New York dim sum warehouse holding a glowstick rather cannily this past Friday and we thought the fellow dancing fireflies around us looked lovely and/or a bit out of control—but that was nothing compared to this. Joy Orbison may have completely resurrected the idea of the Disneyland night light parade as O.G. club destination, in which case means we have been raving since the age of six. Also, are Disney characters at nighttime a little bit creepy? This kind of found footage jawn is better for the ambiance than the actual artistic value, but it does give us some pretty good ideas about where we next want to hear his latest awesome track. We have since revised our opinion that the title of this song is not in fact “BROOKLYN CHILLIN,” but “BROOKLYN CALLIN,” as in, Yo Manhattan, it’s Brooklyn callin. Empire State Building needs to go Grateful Dead on us again statsville. (via The Shape of Things to Come)
