Car Stereo

I love how the two videos below are almost complete inverses of one another. Not only that, they also remind me of sitting with my mom in the back seat of my uncle's car, some spring night in Israel. I must have been about 13 at the time. He had the radio on to a pop station and what came on was a skit from some rap album or another (although I’m still not entirely sure it was an actual rap skit and not the first five minutes of Aphex Twin’s Windowlicker video.) This had been the first time I had ever been barraged by so much obscenity with adults, nevermind my family, in the frame, and I just sat there slightly giggle myself. After about a minute and several dozen angry conjugations of the word “fuck,” my mother asked my uncle to change the station, more out of annoyance than anything else.
