Have a look at Electronic Jack's latest hip hop visual Shinanigans ft D-Row. This is what he had to say when we asked:
Where did you get your inspiration for this video?
"When it came to the actual video, I took influence from a few Vertigo comics. Vertigo being an imprint of the DC comics. Specifically my favorite graphic novel being 100 Bullets. I just loved the whole gritty, sexualized, violent nature of it all. I felt the themes blended in with the pages and story so well.
The animation and illustration produced for the song's visuals, in my opinion, remind me of Batman: Brave and the Bold. Which is actually one of my favorite cartoons..which still remains underrated.
Unlike my "Fourth Echelon" video which mainly took influences from cartoons such as Invader Zim and Tom and Jerry, I wanted the plot in this video to reminiscence a lot of the Asian action/spy movies that I watched as a kid. With a bit of anime like bits in between. Particularly Golgo 13, who is actually referenced in the music, and the series Black Lagoon.
One thing I do wish to create is an animated universe with these music videos where you'll see one small character as a big character in the next. If you noticed, my brother ImmortalMan and I had a cameo in the beginning in the Fourth Echelon video and my same exact character returned in this one as the main."
