Game f/ Lil’ Wayne, Chris Brown, Wiz Khalifa x Tyga – ‘Celebration’ | BTS Video

Game takes us behind the scenes of his “Celebration” video, giving us a good idea of what to expect from the summertime banger’s jubilant visual when the full version drops.

As the snapshots from the set revealed a few days ago, this one features celebrating in one of its purest forms — a good ol’ fashioned barbecue — and is meant to be a nod to another classic California clip.

“Basically, we wanted to take the video back to ‘Nuthin’ But A G Thang‘ and really give it that type of feel,” explained director Matt Alonzo, referring to Dr. Dre‘s video from 20 years ago.

Looks like the crew does a good job of recreating that vibe (a girl even gets her top pulled down just like in ’92), but it would have been dope if they’d managed to stick a Bone Thugs cameo in there since the song is based on a “1st of Tha Month” sample. (Could’ve at least invited Krayzie Bone, since he’s the one who actually said “we havin’ a celebration” in the song.) And since Eazy-E put Bone on, it would have still been kind of a West Coast look.

Oh well. Can’t always get what you want, I guess.
