Jamie Foxx’s new music video for “Blame It (On The Alcohol)” is FUCKING INSAAAAAANE.

I was already laughing at Jake Gyllenhaal but then they showed Ron Howard and I farted so hard my head exploded. WHAT? What is this? FUCK LAND, JAMIE FOX IS ON A BOAT, MOTHERFUCKER. This is the best. Ron Howard went home and told his children (who are themselves all in their mid-60s) that he is a “pimp” now. “Right, children, isn’t that how you say it?” “Shut up, dad, we’re doing our taxes!”

SPOILER ALERT: it was Jamie Foxx in the panda suit the whole time.

On a side note, I can’t wait until Stealth 2: Plane, Interrupted comes out. (Get it? Because the plane is crazy. Like this music video.)

  1. I’m really surprised Brody Jenner wasn’t in this.

  3. Ron Howard might be the only white man over 50 to appear on BET.

    thanks, guy.

  9. The craziest thing about this video is that T-Pains not wearing a top hat.

    The video was mindblowing, but the people after the video literally caused my head to fucking explode.

  12. I guess it worked, since I actually just watched an entire video of Jamie Foxx singing.

    Also, if you have like $30, I bet T-Pain will sing a Videogum post in AutoTune.

  13. That was insane. Ron Howard? Really? I mean, really? Cause nothing says P.I.M.P. like Richie Cunningham.

  14. Ashley from Fresh Prince, whaaaaa

  15. vocoder-core?

  16. this must have been shot at an afterparty during awards season, because HUH?

    so wait Wait WAIT – Samuel L. Jackson, Ron Howard, Jake G., T-Pain, Morris Chestnut, Bill Bellamy, Tatiana Ali, Quincy Jones, Katherine Heigl, Latoya Luckett, Cedric the Entertainer, Dollicia Bryan, Claudia Jordan, a panda, and did I see Chloe Sevigny GETTING DOWN???

    and a partridge in a pear tree… and shit.

  17. I’m surprised videogum likes this so much despite the presence of pandas.

  18. The absolute best part of the video is that there is no discernible change in tone of voice when J. Foxx and T-Pain switch…incredible talent.

  20. it really is hard out there for a pimp

  21. This is so heavily produced that J-Foxxxxx and T-Pain sound exactly the same. Seriously though, who cast this? More seriously though, can we all please party with Ron Howard and Forrest Whitaker?

  23. oh man, i had so many good points to make but everyone else made them already.

    though i don’t see what’s weird about this red-light party and its guest list. it just makes sense, i think. yeah, sure, ron howard, quincy jones, jaime foxxxx, jake gyllenhaal, bill bellamy…i mean, yeah. duh. just the usual suspects, hangin’ like they always do, with t-pain.

    i love it when rich people go crazy! there’s no crazy like rich crazy because rich crazy has enough money to make hats out of melted down silver instead of tin foil!

  24. ron howard is 55, yet his kids are in their mid 60′s… interesting.

    It’s totally true! Foxx is the new Gooding! but take care, ’cause DEnzel Washington is very near behind that sublime title

    does anyone know who that white girl wit tha short blond hair that kissed jamie foxx on tha cheek is that girl is bangin

    • The white girl with the short hair that kissed Jaime is Ashley Scott..she was in The Kingdon with Jamie also in Jericho…..everyone seems to think its Katherine Heigal tho.

      The white girl with the short hair that kissed Jamie is Ashley Scott…she played in The Kingdom with Jamie but I can only remember her from the show Jericho. Everyone seems to think its Katherine Heigl tho.

  27. is it true that jamie foxx is actually copying kanye? vocoder, washed out colours, limp ‘heart’ beat, sunglasses, celeb-dropping, even the panda head reminded me of the bear from kanye’s album covers. LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME

  28. this is one of my favorite songs of the year. up there with chopped ‘n’ screwed.

    He used these actors in his video because all of them had some kind of alcohol related arrest at some point…yes even Ritchie Cunningham. Duh! “Blame it on the Alcohol”
