Fresh off the release of his latest single “Thinkin” featuring Bad Bunny, Anuel AA and Future, Spiff TV delivers the visuals for this recklessly extravagant anthem with a refreshing aesthetic to depict the trapero lifestyle. Rising to prominence through his role as a music video director, but also known for his talents as a producer, writer, and A&R, the Orlando native is gearing up for the release of his project The Union, an album that brings together the forces of trap, Latin trap, and reggaeton. Certainly not one to shy away from using his interests as inspiration — he even put a wrestling ring in the middle of a club and organized matches with his favorite wrestlers for his birthday party last year – Spiff tapped into his affinity for anime to bring the visuals for “Thinkin” to life. Spiff conceptualized a fittingly cinematic animated take on the track, tapping Japanese studio D’Art Shtajio to conceptualize the video.
If bridging trap worlds wasn’t already enough of an accomplishment for Spiff TV, bringing your favorite traperos to life as anime characters only makes this cross-cultural collaboration that more ambitious. Set in Miami, the animated video is filled with heavy money precipitations, luxurious automobile collisions, and futuristic visions of gentlemen’s clubs. Spiff, Bad, Anuel, and Future all dabble in their vices here. An animated Spiff enjoys the company of attentive dancers, while a ripped Bad Bunny opts for some virtual reality ones. There are even cameos from DJ Luian, one of Bad Bunny’s producers. Future rocks out in quintessential trap stance, while Anuel schemes in the club. The plot thickens when altercations ensue and a car comes crashing into the club. Nothing our favorite animated traperos can’t handle – they call it a night and drive away as the sun comes up.
