The music video for “World of Wonders,” — the latest single from the outstanding Ocean & Montana EP from the rap/production duo of Buddy and Kaytranada — picks up where the trippy, imaginative “Find Me” video left off. After dreaming about flying a car through a cloudy sky, Buddy awakens on Kaytranada’s couch (or his grandmother’s, considering the plastic on the cushions), still wearing the castaway-inspired outfit he was wearing in the “Find Me” video — an outfit that remains completely, hilariously unexplained.
Kay wakes up his groggy partner in rhyme with some fast-paced French, roasts him for his outfit for a bit, and after a quick change of clothes for the rapper, they embark on another adventure in LA, set to the tropical finger snaps and woodwinds of “World Of Wonders.” They are picked up by a cowboy hat-sporting friend in a bright orange jeep for some cruising, picking up girls, busting out wheelies, and generally goofing off on a carefree day on the sun-drenched west coast. Dancing, laughing, and good vibes ensue as the sun shines, and eventually sets, with the fellas and their female friends enjoying a night drive through the City of Angels with the top down and (presumably) speakers booming.
The Compton rapper also spends a little time annoying his mom with his friends by giving out haircuts in her kitchen, then shows off his pet chameleon to his appreciative date while explaining the lizard’s peculiar diet of bugs and key lime pie. All the while, the catchy, upbeat track backgrounds the lazy day shenanigans with flirtatious come-ons and requests to Buddy’s Wonder Woman to “take me to your world of wonders.” While he promises to take her to “upper echelon” restaurants, and asks her to “poke it out like Rihanna” (an appropriate comparison, considering the infectious island vibe of Kay’s production), Kaytranada goes along for the ride, never saying much, but beaming all along, showing how much fun the boys had cutting this bouncy, effervescent single. Watch it above, and in case you missed it, listen to the EP below.
