Bunji Garlin’s “Truck On D Road” Video is the Best Commercial for Carnival

You’ll be ready to book a ticket after watching this 24-hour party

August 14, 2014


It's difficult to adequately capture the gleeful mayhem of Trinidad Carnival. Back when he was single and ready to mingle, Jay-Z hit up the annual festival of bacchanal some 15 years ago in his video for "Big Pimpin'." But it's 2014, and it speaks volumes that you can only catch Jay chipping alongside pretty girls in feathered headdress in a mere 480 mega pixels, while Bunji Garlin's new video transports you—at an eye-popping 1080p— into the sweaty, glittering, beaded frenzy of Carnival Tuesday. Back in February, with an all-star cast in tow — A$AP Ferg, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire of Major Lazer, Trinidad James, KES the Band, Anya Ayoung Chee— Garlin took to the parade route with a massive 18-wheeler, brimming with sexy women and overflowing with vibes. After running this clip back a time or two, we guarantee you'll feel each and every one of those pulsating pixels and be ready to book a ticket the rum-soaked promised land. "Truck on D Road" is available now on Reggae Gold 2014, and the A$AP Ferg remix is available on Differentology, Garlin's 11th album, which made its debut this week.
