See Shamir as a Muppet in “Call it Off” Video


Shamir Bailey’s new “Call it Off” video (off his upcoming LP Ratchet) is among the flurry of mesmeric Youtube Music Awards videos released yesterday.

Watch Shamir embark on a desert adventure, whereafter he becomes a clerk in a generic clothing store then transforms — along with the customers — into a muppet, then proceeds to dance and sing his way back to the desert with the verve and style particular to puppets from Jim Henson’s studio. The video was directed Phillip Hodges (who has previous experience directing puppet-filled music videos). Check out the delightful result:
