B.o.B teams up with Funny Or Die for the release of his latest video, “Mr. Mister.”
As expected, Bobby Ray’s FOD collaboration turns into a humorous affair, as the Atlanta MC transforms into different celebrities, including Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong of “Cheech & Chong” fame.
Given the song’s title, it was only right for B.o.B to turn into a couple of Misters. So, he becomes Mr. Clean — white facial hair and all — and Mr. T — complete with his mohawk and gold chains.
The pop culture references continue throughout the video, matching the song’s lyrics. As he rhymes about different topics, Bobby transforms into Bruce Lee, a Power Ranger, and Ryu from “Street Fighter.”
Bobby Ray even recreates a couple of iconic hip-hop moments. In one shot, he plays the role of N.W.A’s Eazy-E with his Jheri curl poking out of his “Compton” hat. In another, he reimagines Tupac Shakur and David LaChapelle’s famous bathtub photograph.
“Mr. Mister” is a single off B.o.B’s Ether album, which features Lil Wayne (“E.T.”), Big K.R.I.T. (“Peace Piece”), and Usher and CeeLo Green (“Big Kids”).
