Heems Is Eric Andre and Hannibal Buress’ Love Guru In “Sometimes”

Sometimes white!

April 07, 2015

In the video for "Sometimes," Himanshu Suri sells whiteness via infomercial—specifically, he sells a bottled white paste that somehow tricks an Avril Lavigne mock-up to accept flowers from Dapwell. The paste isn't nearly as helpful for Eric Andre, who loses his girl to Hannibal Buress before he can say "kale." It's all in good fun, a slapstick inversion of Mike Myer's terrible 2008 film—in this spinoff, a charlatan banks on his genuine otherness instead of painting it on. "Before, it was like, I don't want to be preachy and I don't want to beat you over the head with my political views," Heems explained to FADER during a visit to the offices shortly after the release of his solo album Eat Pray Thug. "But if I can make a joke and still bring up race in the conversation or still cause a conversation to happen, then that's good." Eat Pray Thug is available now via Megaforce.
