Dev – Honey Dip: A Video Breakdown

Share:

Sup bros? Firstly, I would like to extend a warm thank-you to esteemed TOH author 365 Days of Horror for letting me jack his post-format and for helping me give some commentary on a non-metal music video! Y’all are getting two authors for the price of one in the spirit of unnecessary consumerism that is the holidays! Paris Hilton will be color coded in red, and 365 Days of Horror in green. I chose these colors because they are the colors of Christmas, my favorite holiday. And because fuck you. That’s why.

I love Metal just as much as the next Toilet Dweller, but listening to Metal 24/7 can be extremely exhausting. To counter the soul-crushing, life-hating Metal I listen to, I spin a lot of Slutwave to keep things fresh. You cannot have darkness without light, there needs to be a Ying to a Yang, and all of that horseshit. Besides, when you find yourself rockin’ around with fly cuties it may be a good idea to have music other than Addicted to Vaginal Skin by Cannibal Corpse. That shit just ain’t gonna cut it. At any rate, The video that 365 Days of Horror and I are going to be commenting on today comes from the new EP, Bittersweet July, from none other than one of my favorite Slutwave artists: Dev. Specifically, the video for her new single Honey Dip.

Honey Cut

Not this kind of Honey Dip

 

According to the premier release on Billboard.com, this music video was directed by female rapper extraordinaire Kreayshawn. No, not the female rapper that looks like a pack of Kraft Singles. I believe that video direction and production may be a better career choice for Kreay over just being a musician. Kreay has been in the game for a long time, has been all DIY from her beginning, and has an extremely unique artistic aesthetic that I can’t quite put my finger on. Whatever it is, it shines through in this video and really adds to the smoothness of this track. So, without further ado, let’s make like a shitty So-Cal Deathcore band and breakdown!

I stopped paying attention to pop music/pop culture somewhere around high school and have been blissfully unaware ever since. I couldn’t name 2 Kanye West songs, I don’t know the difference between Kedollarsignha and Jessie J, and I thought Ariana Grande was a new drink at Starbucks. So it goes without saying that I have no idea who Dev is. I’m going into this breakdown with a mind free of any notions or preconceptions. This is the breakdown for the pop outsiders. Let’s do this thing.

0:01: Ew. Who wears cheetah?

0:04: The subliminal messaging is working. I really want honey now.

0:06: Ok. Now we have a good idea of who the artist is, who the director is, and what Dev’s bedroom looks like.

0:06: Doesn’t work so much with Kreayshawn.

0:08: Just stick a penis in a vagina. Cut out the bullshit.

0:08: I’m 100% the main beat of this song was straight up jacked from Gusty Glade in Donkey Kong Country 2. Which makes sense because that game has an unreal soundtrack. Seriously. Take a page out of zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz’s book and listen to these two videos at the same time.

0:13: Oh hai, Pink! We’ve missed you.

0:17- We see Dev on her bed flipping through unnamed fashion magazines. Riveting stuff!

0:21: HELLO!

0:22: Now, Dev is doing the same thing she was before except in just a bra. Minds have are now baffled and erections have been erected.

0:24: Dev, coming to an ImageFap gallery near you.

0:24: Dev has decided to take a break from the magazines to take some shirtless selfies. To be fair, if you were as hot as Dev you’d probably be doing the same thing.

0:28: Instead wearing that pink hat, that guy should just wear a shirt that says “Punch me as hard as you can.”

0:28: Dev has left her room and is now singing to some apathetic dude wearing a purple hat in a garden. Kreayshawn and Dev designed this video to take aspects from Dev’s daily life. Apparently this is how she gets her kicks. Who knew? 365 Days of Horror’s take on the hat could not be more correct.

0:30: Hey bb, nice pearl necklace. How would you like… No. I’m not going to make that joke. It’s way too fuckin’ easy.

0:40: Yes, Dev. It’s called a phone. Can you say ‘phone’? F-oh-n. Good!

0:54: See, she’s a real musician. She can snap and everything.

1:03: She’s not looking at stroke mags. I know, I’m bummed too.

1:14: KKK Grand Wizards have rooms that aren’t as white as this.

1:18: If a woman ever takes you to a secluded field and says “Honey dip” to you, run. Run fast and don’t look back.

1:24: Many words can be used to describe Dev. “Street” isn’t one of them. Maybe “Cul de Sac”. Maybe.

1:30: “People do one way. I can do four. When they do less, I can do more.” I’m sure Kerry King has said this exact same thing about Burger King’s Triple Whopper Sandwich Meal.

1:33: Dev just gave the Four Horseman sign. WOOOOOOOOO!

1:49: No need to dance when you can just lay in bed.

1:54: I can’t help but imagine that Dev’s breath smells like Sweet n’ Sour chicken in this scene. Poor purple-hatted man.

1:55: She’s really grabbing Rob Dyrdek’s face. Did he eat something that fell on the floor?

2:00: Subliminal meat!

2:01: I really can’t get over how hot Dev is in this scene. There’s something about that androgynous 90’s Winona Ryder look that just drives me wild. Dev, if you’re into part-time metal bloggers hmu bb <3

2:07: Look at my terrible tattoos!

2:16: BBQ Pitmaster Dev.

2:23: I wonder if she uses a dry or a wet rub.

2:23: Dev decides all this honey talk is gettin’ her some hungry! She starts whipping up some steak on the grill half-naked in a silk dress. You can find a sexual experience similiar to this with W. at the Crawford Ranch. Er, if you’re into that kind of thing. W. uses a wet rub, in case you’re wondering…

2:28: You can be my honey dip, just don’t get any in my hair.

2:32: Sure Dev, grab a drink. No, don’t worry. We’ll edit all this out.

2:36: “I’m a long story with the end open.” Ooooh, that’s dirty. Um…I think.

2:44: Gimme that fucking hat, you doofus!

2:45: Dev takes the hat off the dude. The dude is presumably thinking at this point, “Look, lady. I don’t know who the fuck you are, but I’m trying to earn my living as a gardener here. Would you please leave me alone?”

2:57: If your honey dip lasts more than 4 hours, consult your physician.

2:56: If that is real honey this is very wasteful. Honey bees are going extinct, they don’t need this shit. What would Richard Dawkins think of all this?

3:04: Dev is the girl you take home to Mom and Dad.

3:05 : And then say, “See, Cindy wasn’t so bad, was she?”

3:09: Again, it just would have been easier with peens and va-jay-jays.

3:10: We get a flash of nice, juicy steak being smothered with honey. The TOH Texans are most likely masturbating vigorously at this point.

3:17: “Oh, shit. Have you guys been filming this entire time?!”

3:23: This innuendo is making me thirsty.

3:23: The video ends with another bra shot of Dev, then to her drinking her honey tea. Shows over. Time to go home, folks.

If Slutwave just isn’t for you, pretend this post never happened. If you like what you heard, Dev’s EP Bittersweet July is out now! Thanks for listening, friends!

    haha, great start to the day here.

        I’ve never put honey on my steak, but I think I’m going to start.

        • Edward #negrodMMXV

          A1 on a passable steak – nothing on an excellent steak (except maybe a little horseradish on the side, that’s some grown up shit there)

          • KJM

            Worcestershire sauce. Sometimes I’ll let a steak soak in it for a couple hours before I fry it up.

          • BLVKKBEVRDED DRVGON

            A1 is acceptable on a steak but not advised

          • KJM

            I’ll have a little sauce on the side.

          • Jöhnny Crünch ™

            You know

          • Herr Schmitty

            See, this is acceptable steak prep. The benefit of Worcestershire Sauce is that it brings out the natural acidity of the steak and therefore compliments/enhances its natural flavors, rather than obscuring these flavors.

            Montreal Steak seasoning has similar benefits. These are both acceptable modifications for a steak. Chimichurri also gets a pass, as chimichurri is essentially a Latin version of doing Worcestershire.

          • VVorld Peace

            I use Montreal Steak seasoning on roast beef au jus.

          • JWG

            Correct.

            That said, if you’re not using Lea & Perrins, you’re not doing Worcestershire sauce to its greatest potential.

          • KJM

            Correct. It’s the only one my local stores carry anyway.

          • Vernon Gholston’s NFL Career

            Horseradish with steak is amazing. There’s one thing I like more than that and it’s this Parmesan crusted filet mignon at this one Brazilian BBQ place I go to. It’s so fucking good.

        • Really? I feel like they are two things that should be held in their own regard and only enjoyed by themselves.

          /startrank

          That also goes for A1 sauce. It is in my opinion that if one is going to fork of the $$$ for a steak that they should enjoy every bit of the $$$ and not ruin it by smothering it garbage.

          • VVorld Peace

            I actually do prefer a good steak dry. Grill it raw to satiate my bloodlust.

          • I ordered a steak at Applebee’s with my parents. Asked for medium and they gave me beyond well done. Is it really that fucking hard to cook a steak?

          • VVorld Peace

          • KJM

            Nah, it’s not hard to cook steak properly at all. I do it often.

          • Hubert, Goat ov Doom and Void

            You damn humans with your damned hands.

  • KJM

    Awesome piece. My choices for non-Metal are usually Classic Rock, 70s Soul/R&B, Reggae, Hip Hop, and the occasional Jazz.

    • VVorld Peace

      Have we talked about my love for P-Funk? George Clinton put on one of the best live shows I’ve ever seen.

      • KJM

        Yes! I saw George Clinton/P-Funk All-Stars in 1998, 3 hours of musical insanity.

        I’ve also seen Original P.
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Original_P

        Also got to see Les’ Bucket Of Bernie Brains(i.e. Les Claypool, Buckethead, Bernie Worrell, & Brain) and, last but not least, Bernie Worrell’s Woo Warriors. I’m still hoping to see Bootsy Collins someday.

        • VVorld Peace

          You’ve seen much more than I. But I was very impressed by Clinton’s 3-hour set. It was extremely different from a metal show, but equally awesome.

          • tertius_decimus

            The best venue I saw in my entire life was The Thing concert (swedish/norwegian free jazz). What thsese dudes do on stage is beyond everything. Even more drive than on metal show and… it’s all acoustic without any sound amplification!

          • VVorld Peace

            I’ll have to check them out.

          • tertius_decimus

            Not sure you’ll like it. It’s a very chaotic stuff. Even in jazz there’s no improvisation left nowadays, everyone plays what was rehearsed previously. But not in free jazz which consists from improvisation ENTIRELY. If describe loosely, it’s a “scream of random pitches and intervals” or something in the neighborhood.

          • KJM

            There were many epic face-melting guitar moments at that show, enough to rival any of the Metal shows I’ve seen.

          • I’m guessing there was a shitload of weed smoke there?

          • VVorld Peace

            Actually no, due to the venue.

          • Lacertilian

            Eat brownies before those gigs.

          • I’ve only smoked before gigs a handful of times. Last one I can remember is Cynic and Meshuggah.

        • VVorld Peace

          Also, I feel like someone should talk about Praxis at some point on here.

          • KJM

            FUCK YES. ‘Transmutations’ is a brilliant album.

          • tertius_decimus

          • Vernon Gholston’s NFL Career

            I’m watching the match those two did at One Night Stand 2005. It’s so good. Sabu is the most extreme wrestler in my opinion.

          • Vernon Gholston’s NFL Career

            You got me. New Jack is so extreme that the word extreme is an understatement for him.

          • KJM

            If only Vince wasn’t such a control freak, ECW could’ve survived as a separate brand with Paul in charge. You could still have NXT as well.

          • Vernon Gholston’s NFL Career

            I hated the ECW reboot. In my opinion Paul Heyman should leave the WWE and form a new promotion. He could recruit a lot of the old ECW talent as wrestlers and trainers, hire Raven as head of creative and create what would be described as a next generation of extreme wrestling.

          • HELL YEAH!!! I didn’t know they’re still wrestling. I figured Sabu would’ve OD’d by now.

          • Vernon Gholston’s NFL Career

            I am probably going to go because they’ll be there as well as Val Venis and Brodus Clay.

    • Paris Hilton

      Don’t compare Kreayshawn to Iggy. Kreay is fucking LIGHT-YEARS better than Iggy. That rapping guy on the Everest commercial is better than Iggy.
