Phantom Organ

Video: The Roots – ‘Understand’

Following “When the People Cheer,” The Roots go on another claymation adventure in the dark video for “Understand” featuring Dice Raw and Greg Porn.

Directed by Joe Baughman, the animated short takes place in a church and stars a cut-up Benjamin Franklin that journeys through life in a pine box before eventually meeting its maker. The creepy clip also features a phantom organ and a coffin-making factory.

On Monday, The Roots will release their 14th album …and then you shoot your cousin.

See their vision come to life in the unconventional clip.
