Earl Sweatshirt Slacks Off in ‘Whoa’
Earl Sweatshirt got pensive and introspective in his video for “Chum,” but in his new video for “Whoa,” the Odd Future MC returns to jester form, slacking off and clowning around in this clip directed by Tyler, the Creator (as Wolf Haley). Earl wakes up in a trailer with a much older woman dressed in a tutu, and Tyler pops in to spit the hook and show off his gold chain.

Later, Earl chills on an inflatable toy in a half-drained pool as friends skate around him, and the crew horses around with shopping carts. Group mascot Lucas Vercetti gets some unsettling snippets of screen time, grossly gnawing on what appears to be an ice cream cone.
“Whoa” and “Chum” will be on Earl Sweatshirt’s upcoming album, Doris.
