With a song as infectious as the insta-anthem, "F*** You," it would be hard for Cee-Lo to screw up the actual video for the track. But as anyone familiar with the Goodie Mob and Gnarls Barkley member knows, Cee-Lo doesn't really do screwups.
The "F*** You" video has the same sense of unabashed joy that the music conveys, despite its vitriolic message. We meet a young, potty-mouthed Cee-Lo in a rather musical diner, complete with backup singers and a mother who disapproves of such language from such a young boy.
We follow Cee-Lo through years, as a short-order cook in high school and a struggling artist, always getting rejected by the object of his affection because of the size of his bank account.
"F*** You" is a delightful video, though really any video with cursing backup singers is a win, and it totally fits the song's cavalier vibe.
Check out the video below. It's quite obviously got really NSFW language. Cee-Lo's The Lady Killer is due out in October.
