The now infamous $100,000 USD disaster of a video was a collection of unfortunate events as director Ryan Staacke notes in a recent interview with Pigeons & Planes; Young Thug was 10 hours late, police got involved more than once, Thug refused to leave his car when he did finally arrive, and censorship got in the way. By the end of the shoot, Staake didn’t even get to meet Young Thug but he did deliver an interesting video for the song “Wyclef Jean.” The explanation still leaves many of us with more unanswered questions: Why was Young Thug so late? Why did he fly a little kid all the way out from Mississippi but not bother to film any scenes himself? How the hell did Staake convince Thug and his team to release this thing?
