This company has done some pretty big-time commercials and packages. I really like the "Gone Country" one.

They sound like sharp people, it's such a shame they couldn't link the content of the video to the meaning of the song.


which would be what?

i kinda like it, the cgi isn't the best and the "showoff" between qtip that that chick was pointless. it couldve been edited more tightly 2 give it some edge. i wish Prince did more in the vid too.

- U the one claiming U know how it ends lol

since it's to be continued - I guess there's one comming - but who knows when it comes to Prince he just might keep us hanging ...4ever. ??

watch the Chocolate box vid. the chick ends up in q-tips arms at the end! lol


OK watched it again ... she's not in his arms - she's got him by the scruff of the neck
She's some hostile chick !

Still ...we don`t know what he's about, at night on the roof - he sure ain't armed with chocolates - I think she's got a good case! biggrin

The video was kinda fun, but the direction was so cheesy, I just assumed Prince directed it.



I assumed he directed it too!
At least then there would be a reason for it's shitness.

Very interesting. I just wish I liked the video. With that said, it's better than some of Prince's past videos.
I'm not a fan of "old Prince". I'm not a fan of "new Prince". I'm just a fan of Prince. Simple as that

The Greatest Romance Ever Sold had a pretty slick video too, directed by Malik Syeed (one of Hype Williams' proteges) I think and had some special effects too... it even got played on TRL (if only once). And it even made sense as far as the storyline was concerned--portraying a back-and-forth relationship on the rocks.

i thought the video looked cool but then once q-tip catches up to the girl they just stand there for the rest of the song.
it's time for a new direction / it's time for jazz to die

That is probably my favorite video from him...ever. I love the effects on that video.

As for the design and visual effects, yes it's wonderful! However, the storyline sucks!! falloff The song is supposed to be about a woman who is pursuing the man for his "chocolates"!! I thought I would be seeing the lady doing some stunts and spy things like how Angelina Jolie did in Mr & Mrs. Smith or something trying to track down the man, while Q-tip is running from her like how Harrison Ford in The Fugitive did - ducking and hiding! lol

I think the Chocolate Box video looks great. I am no video expert, but the imagery is crystal clear and it all looks good to my eyes. How good does a music video have to be anyway?

Is that Q-Tip running around chasing that girl? To me, all I can think about when I watch it is that it looks like Chris Brown chasing Rhianna and jumping on roofs.

rolleyes yawn typical shitty comments from the typical shitty comment people.


I thought the video was great.
It appeared to me that Prince was some sort of mafia god-father type figure watching over the two of them.
Also I got from the lyrics, that she's the type of girl that wants a box of chocolates everyday, but she cant get with him unless she has a J-O-B.
