Michelle Obama Consoles a Sobbing Kanye West in Childish Gambino’s Latest Promo

Editors’ Choice: Video for ‘Feels Like Summer’ is directed by Donald Glover, Ivan Dixon and Greg Sharp, and features an array of cartoon cameos

Michelle Obama Consoles a Sobbing Kanye West in Childish Gambino’s Latest Promo

Childish Gambino’s latest promo is an animated, cameo-filled feast, full of warm summer hues. 

Directed by Donald Glover (Childish Gambino’s real name), Ivan Dixon and Greg Sharp (who we interviewed here), the film for ‘Feels Like Summer’ features Donald Glover strolling down a sun-kissed street with headphones and in various scenes unfolding around him. It's less politically charged than 'This Is America' but will arguably lead to just as much conversation. 

Kanye West has made a series of bizarre Twitter outbursts this year. Luckily for him, Michelle Obama - with whom he has a somewhat fraught relationship in real life - is on hand to console him while he’s sobbing, dressed in a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat. Elsewhere, Travis Scott destroys Nicki Minaj’s toy castle, as a nod to him pipping her to number one album in the US recently, and Drake chases after Future - the pair were once a duo - after he steals his bike. 

One canny YouTube commenter has dissected the entire video and picked out every cameo within it. Check out the video below and head over to the YouTube comments for the full lowdown.
