Just in time to mitigate all that cloying cheer heading into the holiday weekend, director Matt Alonzo and rapper The Game have released a not-particularly festive video for the latter’s track, “Martians vs. Goblins,” from his The R.E.D. Album. The clip takes place inside of a spooky mental hospital with blood-splattered walls and dull lights set to stutter. Its title comes from the guest stars: self-proclaimed Martian, Lil Wayne, and Tyler, the Creator, whose most recent album was called Goblin. The Game spends most of the runtime being wheeled around, straightjacketed, and strapped to a gurney, an unsavory look beaming out of his beastly contact lenses. While The Game trades cleverly crude barbs with rising rapper Tyler, who is trapped in a padded cell here, Lil Wayne is nowhere to be seen. What happens instead is much preferable, though; some haggard inmates at the asylum mouth the words to his hook, and it just feels right.JB
