Thank you Erykah Badu for one of the best video bombs all of time!! The Grammy award winner can be seen sneaking up on New York PIX 11 news reporter Mario Diaz in the middle of his coverage of Shia LaBeouf’s recent arrest. The shit eating grin on her face is priceless, and so is her gigantic white “Pharrell-esque” hat. The songstress then whips out the old, middle school “finger in a butt hole gesture” before she goes in for a big ol’ smooch. Diaz handles the highjacking in the most professional way possible, strong arming Badu out of the shot. Check it out!
At first Badu denied that she was the culprit but the truth finally came out on Twitter. Of course it did.
The soul singer was up to much more than video bombing this weekend in New York. On friday she shared the world famous Radio City Music Hall stage with longtime friend Dave Chappelle and on Saturday threw it down at a Bedford-Stuyvesant Brooklyn block party, celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing.
This is not the first time Erykah has taken to the street with her antics. In 2010 she filmed an impromptu music video for her single Window Seat. The video was shot guerrilla style with no crew, and follows Badu walking down the street in the Dealey Plaza historic district of Dallas, slowly stripping down to her birthday suit as passersby stare with looks of shock.
