If you thought you knew Ludacris, you were abs-olutely wrong.
But get back. Get back. You don’t know him like that.
In Ludacris’ new music video for “Vitamin D,” clearly a song about people who just need to be out in the sun more, the rapper shows up with the-most-CGI-of-CGI abs possible. And the internet was more brutal than an ab-workout regimen.
The hate was fast, but he’s not furious. Even Ludacris got in on the joke.
Still, the real problem may be that people forgot Ludacris used to do these weird body transformations in his music videos all the time.
His last album, “Ludaversal,” came out in 2015, and “Battle of the Sexes” was released in 2010. In that time, he’s been busy on the “Fast and Furious” movies, with the latest installment, “The Fate of the Furious,” debuting this week.
With the attention span of the internet, people might be actin’ a fool because they just don’t remember Luda’s ways.
Also, the fake abs seem like an intentional joke. After showing off his god-like muscles and teaming up with Ty Dolla $ign to be some sort of proctologists who exclusively work on models (and seem inadequate at providing proper medical care), it’s revealed that everything was a dream.
Or perhaps Luda was just paying homage to “Rollout.” That’s possible, too.
