Back in the fourth grade, in my neck of the woods, you didn't get much cooler than having a Walkman and a Game Boy in your Starter Jacket pouch. And if you didn't have Pokemon and a Snoop Dogg mix on loop, you just weren't doing it right. Eighteen years later, these two, 90s cultural icons have finally joined forces. Although Game Boys have fallen by the wayside and Snoop has adopted a Rastafarian lion's persona, the partnership shown in the new "Get Away" music video still oozes with nostalgic charm.
The video, directed by Ashten "Whoopi" Winger and animated by Mykola Dosenko, features Snoop and the song's producer Major Lazer battling it out in a pretty spot-on replica of Pokemon.
