Freaky Friday: Lil Dicky & Chris Brown trade bodies in new video

Freaky Friday: Lil Dicky & Chris Brown trade bodies in new video
Lil Dicky & Chris Brown trade bodies in this new Tony Yacenda-directed video

To be honest, this one probably wouldn’t be getting a post if it wasn’t for the well-executed (and hilarious) “Freaky Friday” parody.

The new Lil Dicky single is named after 2003-movie and features the American rapper switching bodies with Chris Brown.

“Freaky Friday” starts out at a restaurant with Lil Dicky wishing he was more comparable to artists with tattoos and dance moves, like Chris Brown. He wakes up the next morning in Breezy’s body, and raps about what it’s like in his new digs. By the end, everything comes full circle and him and Brown break out the choreography together, where Dicky finally realizes he loves himself. That’s all it takes to revert things back to normal.

Along the way, Dicky also takes a spin in the bodies of Ed Sheeran, DJ Khaled, and Kendall Jenner, where he finds himself questioning his need to constantly yell, and acknowledging his new found vagina.

The song is funny (and catchy) all on it’s own, but the video, directed by Tony Yacenda, really pushes it to the next level. The only criticism is the Jenner bit at the end. That could have been funnier, or left out altogether. It sounded forced and was an unfortunate way to end an otherwise funny production.
