For some unknown reason, there aren’t enough quality GIFs of Missy Elliott dancing around in a trash bag from back in the day when she was still known as Misdemeanor. And dammit, there should be!
“The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)” cemented Elliott’s place on the rap scene thanks to Timbaland’s sick beats, her slow cadence and Pebbles’ sultry hook. Hype Williams took on the hefty task of creating a video that matched the dynamic of the song (and ultimately set a precedent for all future Missy Elliott videos – “Get Ur Freak On,” “Work It,” etc.). It’s amazing to think how much of a classic this video is. Now, you can relieve all the bug-eyed, beep-beep moments thanks to our GIF wall. You’re welcome.
Missy has gone and filled up a trash bag full of air and locked herself in a tin can.
Wait, now she’s in some Metropolis-type world cut from Madonna’s “Express Yourself” video.
Beep! Beep! Did we ever find out who has the keys to her jeep?
She also sits on Hill’s like Lauryn (though, without all the tax problems).
I was always curious if she was wearing glasses or a clearly, unsafe bike helmet.
Bonus GIF: Lil Kim back in the day when she didn’t look like a busted China doll.
If you’re feeling nostalgic, watch the video in full below. If you want to relive another classic music video, check out our GIF set of TLC’s “Waterfalls.”
